Baillie's Cottage, Muizenberg

I have been very brave and highly stimulated attending an online workshop run by  Johannes Vloothuis backed by Wetcanvas.  https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register


This free workshop starts at 10pm SA time and it actually keeps me wide awake!  I eventually fall into bed at about 12.45 and sleep on all the invaluable information I have received.


I have been having a good look at past paintings and I have now adjusted this one.  The trees behind the chimney do not exist and the embankment doesn't quite look like that but that is what art is all about!  I think it looks a lot better!

Hi Carol, The wetcanvas workshop is wonderful isn't it? I have caught a couple of them. Such a talented artist and so much information.

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!
