Keurboom Park Plein Air Take Two

Since the third Wednesday came too quickly this month, we had a rerun on the fourth! So on September 22, the plein air group – possibly the amalgamated version – met once again in Keurboom Park, with a few new sketchers in tow, making eight of us altogether.

This week it was really “Springy” in the park – a beautifully sunny, windless morning. There were lots of school children running about, on a nature-study outing, as well as plenty of joggers and dog-walkers, so plenty of activity and plenty to paint all around us.








Another peacefully inspiring morning was had by all. If anyone else wishes to join the plein air group, please email Sonja Frenz and she’ll add you on whatsap –

Plein Air Outing to Keurboom Park

On Wednesday 15 September a group of SASA plein air enthusiasts met at Keurboom Park in Rondebosch, for a morning’s painting and sketching.






The weather wasn’t exactly warm, but there was a definite feel of Spring in the air, with trees budding all around us and flowers dotted around in the long grass. The park was full of dog-walkers, mums and their little ones and nannies with their charges, enjoying the lovely fresh air.






We had a really good day, surrounded as we were by trees, lush greenery and rivers spanned by bridges, with our beautiful mountain in the background, giving us all beautiful choices of subject matter and composition.








In fact, everyone enjoyed the setting so much that we’ll be back there again next week – Wednesday the 22nd of September – and perhaps more of our members would like to join us? If you’d like to be a part of the plein air group, please email Sonja Frenz – – and she’ll add you to the whatsapp group.
