On Wednesday 19 February, Sonja Frenz took a group of artists to the Montebello Art and Design Centre in Newlands for a wonderful plein air experience.
Mostly, working in watercolour, some of the group started off in the Greenhouse Nursery – an enchanting and very peaceful place to sit and sketch, while others sat in the shade of the big trees at the coffee shop. It was a very hot day, so finding a shady spot in which to work was essential.
The centre has a diverse selection of beautiful scenes to offer – so much to see and capture on paper – and we’ll definitely be going back there. The next visit will be on Wednesday, March the 4th
Sonja has, very generously, agreed to lead the plein air outings till the end of the year, so if any members would like to join/rejoin the group, please whatsapp Sonja on 0836313476.
We can look forward to another marvelous year of painting en plein air.
