On Tuesday 17 May, eight of us got together at “Ons Huisie” on Blouberg beachfront, which is one of our favourite spots, because of its wonderful view of Table Mountain.
It was a perfect, windless Autumn day – changeable, but lovely for sketching out of doors. We started off with brilliant sunshine, which turned misty and mysterious later in the morning, giving us such lovely atmospheric effects to attempt to capture.
There are numerous benches along that stretch of beach, so we could sit and enjoy each others’ company, while painting or sketching. The tide was quite low, providing us with much inspiration in exposed rocks, sea grass and reflections on wet sand.
Most of us were using charcoal and pencils, watercolours, or pastels, so did a few quick sketches, but we’ll definitely be going back for more!
