Chart Farm in Newlands is one of our favourite plein air venues and we gathered there again this last Monday, the 16th of November. The weather was lovely and the roses were spectacular.
Some of us found a shady spot and painted the pretty cottage visible over the tops of the rose bushes, while others got up close to the gorgeous roses and yet others concentrated on the beautiful mountain vistas around us.
It was quite busy for a Monday morning, so the cafe was bustling at lunch time, but we were able to have a well-spaced coffee and catch-up after painting and sketching all morning. We had a wonderful time out in the fresh air, surrounded by so much loveliness and the heady scent of hundreds of roses in full bloom.
Thanks Sonja Frenz, for yet another very happy plein air outing. If anyone else would like to join the group, please email Sonja on firstname.lastname@example.org
