Destination Lions Head


This was painted on one of our mornings at Signal Hill.  The mist was roaring in from the sea, ahead and to the right and Table Mountain is on the left.

This is one my favourites, that road glows and leads you through to Lion's Head.

You captured the feeling of a misty morning. Lovely colors.

Beautiful, love the light that the mountain is catching. Your portrait commission is wonderful too, I bet the parents do love it.

Thank you Jean. I am loving painting outdoors.

Thanks Barbara. Yes, the parents loved it. I will be posting a painting I did of the Mother soon, which they rejected, although I think it is one of my best ever portraits but then it is not easy to see yourself in a portrait. I think you have to be very mature!

Thank you for the visit Laura and I apologise for the late reply but as you can see I have been nursing a sick puppy for almost two months. As soon as I get back to some kind of normality I will visit your blog.

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!
