The Constantiaberg Art Society held a members exhibition at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden in January. During the show, on Saturday 19 January, members painted near the exhibition hall and promoted the Society and exhibition.
All participating artists were invited and six took part. Jeremy Day was first to arrive and set to work on some paintings of jars of sweets in his detailed realist style. You can see his finished works at http://www.artistjeremyday.com/
Next to arrive was Karin Davel, who “draws” with a sewing machine! She sat next to Jeremy and was soon busy sewing a portrait of him.
Andrew Mogatla set up his easel across the way and painted the Dylan Lewis cheetah sculpture below the steps in his distinctive style. Read more about him here https://www.growcreativesolutions.com/andrew-mokgatla
Belinda Basson http://belindabasson.blogspot.com/ and Elsa-Marie Fourie sat on a bench outside the hall with their easels and painted the view from there.
I sat near Andrew and sketched Castle Rocks and the tea room and garden below.
Visitors to the garden came and chatted to the artists and went to look at the exhibition inside. We all enjoyed the day. Thanks to Kirstenbosch for letting us do this; it was fun!
