watercolour of a river

Lourens River

The Lourens River emerges in a spring in the Hottentots Holland Mountains. It flows through nature reserves, farms and parks. This sparkling, murmuring gift to our basin carries a message of life through two towns then meanders over the beach into False Bay. This sparkling, murmuring thread carries a message of life all the way through two towns in our basin.

False Bay

Our bay is beautiful shelter from the extremes of the Western seaboard.  The water is warmer, the waves are moderated and the surrounding countryside is still largely unspoiled.  Here are the paintings I have done around the bay.

Adventures “out there”

I like the immediacy and risk of working in the field.  Working fast, focusing on the changing light and tuning out all but the subject means seeing a scene in a whole new way.   In this gallery I show some of the work coming from these adventures out of the studio.
