Lions Head from Oudekraal

During the cold winter months we painted at Oudekraal.  What a magnificent venue, so quiet and peaceful but oh so freezing.  I don't know where summer has gone to as it is still freezing!

Hi Carol, I can just feel the cold looking at this painting. Your paintings always have a good sense of atmosphere.

Thanks Di - the Judges didn't like it though.

Oh, those horrible judges! Their opinions can be so destructive to your creative process. Just get painting again and try to leave that judging experience behind you.

I agree, there is great depth in this. Love the blues and your rocks are perfect. Did you paint this on location in the cold?
Carol said…
Thank you Barbara. This was started on location and completed in the studio with photos and memory!

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.
