A few plein-air sketches with John


Farm Road.
Road over the ridge. Watercolour and pen & ink. 370 x 280 mm.

During John’s recent visit to the farm, we went out sketching on a few occasions.  However, I was understandably distracted by my new  grand-daughter, Chloë !

John spent more time on his plein-air studies, all of which  they turned out really well. For those who can access our Facebook page, they can be seen here: http://www.facebook.com/africanpainting?sk=wall

      Thanks Dave! I was rather disappointed with them myself; as my son’s pictures done in oil, turned out so well! So I appreciate your message.
