Commission Accomplished

This painting was a commissioned artwork which thankfully the parents loved.  I thoroughly enjoyed painting it and am happy with the finished product.

This double portrait is really excellent, Carol! The muted colours give it a timeless feel. A lovely painting to own even if you do not know the children!

Thank you so much Marie.It is actually amazing how much you learn about a child while doing a photoshoot. It all helps when painting them.

Gorgeous work Carol, I am not surprised the parents loved it.
Double portraits are always so difficult for me. What sweet expressions you have captured!!! You are a very courageous woman. Lovely!

Thanks for the visit Barbara, and the comment. That is high praise indeed, coming from a great artist like you, thank you.

Thank you Kathleen. This was my first double portrait but I did a photo shoot first which helped to find out more about the characters of the children. I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed it!

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.

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!
