Another day of painting in the harbour. This time we went after lunch and painted facing the boats. About 4.30 we then turned our easels around so that we were facing Chapmans peak drive and painted the sunset. I would say that this was the second most exciting "painting en plein air" I have experienced. The mist on Tafelberg still takes number one!
SOLD Slangkop lighthouse is the tallest iron tower on the South African Coast and sits at the one end of Kommetjie. It measures 100 feet from base to the balcony and has been operational since 1919. Every lighthouse has a different frequency of flashes and this one emits four flashes every 30 seconds as it turns and can be seen for 33 sea miles. Here is an oil painting of the lighthouse from a photograph Bryan took. I would like to do a watercolour of it sometime soon.
I would like to invite you to join the Group "South Africa Plein Air" (http://pleinairartists.ning.com/group/southafricapleinair) on the network 'Plein Air Artists'. We would love to see your art there and hear about your plein air adventures.
Thanks Barbara - you really should try a boat - actually quite difficult! They have so much personality!
Thanks for the visit - yes, we are blessed and we really do appreciate it!
Thank you for the invite. I went to see your new web site and I think it is a wonderful idea. I havent had much spare time lately but as soon as things quieten down I will definately join. I really think SA artists should become more proactive on the net. I see that Di Mc Naughten paid you a visit too. Lovely person and very talented artist.
