View from our veranda

These trees sit on the ridge of Wynberg Hill. I have never established whether they are planted on open land or in someones garden, but they look spectacular from accross the valley.

Those beautiful trees that you can see from your garden! They have made a wonderful painting Carol.

Your paintings are beautiful. I have been browsing for a while, and i think the Courtyard Hotel did make me linger for a while longer.

Hi Carol, I love the controlled palette here and the almost abstract quality of the landscape!
Carol said…
Thank you for the visit Silver, and for your kind words!

Thank you Marie. It was painted very quickly indeed which is probably why it is so free!
Enchanting and delicate work. You evoke a delicious mood, Carol!

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!
