It was a gloriously sunny day on Friday 24 July, when ten of our members met at Oude Molen’s “Back Area Garden Deli” for a plein air painting session. It was so good to get together – carefully apart – after such a long time of isolation.
This is a perfect setting for outdoor painting, surrounded by plenty of fresh air, loads of space and wonderful scenery, with the added interest of horses and chickens wandering about. For many of us, most inspiring was the company and the chatting in between the painting, with our diligent masks in place.
The deli provided us with coffee and snacks and also has a lovely supply of fresh farm produce, which we happily plundered, taking bags full home with us.
Thanks to Sonja Frenz for organising it for us. Next week the plan is to meet at Groot Constantia on Thursday morning at 9:00.
