Seaside paintings

in art •  last year

The Western Cape province coasts in South Africa are known for their quaint and colorful fishing boats and fishermen on the beaches. They are also popular subject for artists, including yours truly.

Alas, I haven't been able to visit the area in person for a long time, but to me, painting is to some extent a kind of virtual travel. So here are two places where I have let my brush travel:

17-4 oil on board 20x25cm.JPG
Fishing boat, Western Cape. Oil on board, 20 x 25 cm

17-12 Fisherman oil on board 18 x 13 cm.JPG
Fisherman. Oil on board, 18 x 13 cm

Such small paintings are fun to do, don't take long and you learn a great deal in the process.
