Oil on Canvas 100cmx50cm
Mountains of presence and strength. Fields of Van Gogh yellow. Cypress trees of Tuscany.
Painting of the view out to the Stellenbosch mountains from Clos Malverne.
A large amount of paint made its way onto my shirt, as I moved the canvas around the easel to work more easily on parts.
The challenge to maintain simplicity, capture the serenity of spring, and let the scene speak with minimal input, while still engaging the viewer.
