On Friday 19 January a group of SASA members gathered for some plein air painting and drawing on the magnificent Buitenverwachting wine estate in the Constantia valley.
It was rather overcast and windy, but the wonderful scenery more than made up for the failings of the weather.
There was a view to inspire every artist, whether it was vineyards and mountains they were looking for, or beautiful architecture, flanked by ancient trees. There were even some chickens strutting their stuff on the lawn and begging to be captured on our wind-whipped pages.
When the elements got too much, the coffee shop and beanery offered some welcome warmth and shelter, where our artists could compare notes and have a hot drink, before leaving for home.
Thanks to Johan Pieterse for organising another very enjoyable outing.
