Ballots Bay

I have just been up in George again.  After my business appointments I went down to Ballots Bay, where we have a plot of land.  I chatted with my neighbour on his deck.  He had to rush off and I asked if I could stay and paint a picture of  the bay.  Here is the painting:

and here is a photo of me painting:

You can see where it is on Google Earth at:  Latitude:  34° 0’41.53″S and Longitude:  22°32’22.10″E

  1. Wonderful painting. You captured the depth and perspective very well. Also great, luminous color.

  2. Stephen, If only I could learn from you! This painting is beautiful, loose and NOT OVERDONE!

    I agree with Leslie that the depth perception of the land leading to the bay is enhanced with the orientation of the paper.
