Oude Molen eco-village

Many months have passed with no blogging!!! 2010 has so far not been too kind to us but things are beginning to change - in August, we are going to be grandparents!!! Unfortunately my son is in Johannesburg but we will just have to make a trip up there as they don't come to Cape Town very often.

Back to my painting - we started off the year painting at an Eco village in Pinelands called Oude Molen. This is a side view of the little restaurant. To the right is a big veg garden which supplied us with beautiful tasty fresh veg for the duration of our stay at a very reasonable price. I also bought some horse manure for my compost heap.

No doubt about it - plein air is your 'thing'. I remember you starting this, but great to see the finished painting.

Thanks Liz. Yes, I am hooked on plein air!

Cheval Voyeur Farm

The last few "quickies" from Cheval Voyeur Farm.


This was a quick oil while there was still quite a lot of water around.


A charcoal sketch done while hiding in the bushes trying to keep out of the sun!

The Courtyard

The Courtyard Hotel was the venue for our painting out in the open for a while. The painting of Deveils Peak was painted at the same location. I need more practice with buildings! We are painting in the Company Gardens at the moment and I am getting lots of practice in. Strange how the window is not centred in this building, but that is the way it is.

Centre of the Book

We spent two Tuesday mornings in the Company Gardens in central Cape Town. The first day I tried to paint this and failed dismally. The next week I used charcoal in an attempt to capture the architectural beauty of the building. Now I must try to paint it again! I love charcoal!
