A big thank you to those of you who haven't forgotten me!  And Martine, I still had to use Google Translate -hopefully I will learn a little bit of French in the New Year.

These 2 portraits were done mainly from life - with touch ups in the studio from photos.  Can't seem to help myself doing little bits afterwards.  I'm trying to be more painterly and was quite pleased with these.

Genadendal Locals

So long since the last blog ... time just seems to run away.
Just thought I'd break the ice and post this painting of two Genadendal locals chatting on a (broken) bench.  I also did a separate little painting of the older fellow.
And then let's see how I go keeping this up again.

Up the West Coast

I can't believe it's 3 months since I last posted!
I have been avoiding the computer when I can and painting as much as I can.  This summer has been a hive of activity with exhibitions running into each other. And of course, with exhibitions one needs paintings!
I have had a month's break but come Monday it's back into the swing of exhibitions again.
I do need to get back into reading all the blogs and catching up with what's going on in blogland, but until then, am posting a few paintings that I did on a long weekend painting trip to Langebaan.
