Plein Air Outing at False Bay Harbour

On Tuesday 14 February, a group of SASA members gathered at the Simon’s Town Yacht Club, for a plein air painting session. What a wonderful way to spend Valentine’s Day!IMG-20170215-WA0009

It was a gloriously sunny day, with a little wind to cool things down and whip things up a bit. There was plenty of choice of subject-matter – something to suit everyone’s needs – and plenty of different angles from which to start.

There were buildings and boats, harbour scenes and wind-swept trees, even a heap of rocks became inspiration for an abstract work or two. There were shady nooks for hiding from the wind and sociable walls for basking in the sun.

When everyone had had their fill and sketch-books filled, the pergola’d restaurant verandah was a great place to compare notes and admire each others works of art.

Thanks to Michele Batchelder and Karin Davel for organising this very rewarding and satisfying outing.
