South African Society of Artists Exhibition

The first of two Members Exhibitions was opened on Saturday 28 May at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Cape Town.  This exhibition runs until Monday 6 June 2011.

I entered one of my en plein air paintings done at a private home at Marina de Gama. The whole painting was done on site, I didn't touch it at home in case I messed it up.  I hope I have conveyed the tranquility of this beautiful venue.  What a place to retire to!

You caught it beautifully, I used to live in Marina da Gama and knew immediately what you had painted. Stunning!

Congratulations! I used to live in Muizenberg and we used to windsurf around the Marina Da Gama. Lovely rendition.

Wow, I haven't blogged for so long that I thought I may have been deserted! but I haven't! Thanks Angelique, Jean, and Barbara. Lovely words of encouragement.

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!
