OPEN STUDIO, DEEP SOUTH, CAPE TOWN
A wonderful morning was spent by SASA members visiting 5 Art Studios by local Artists
Simonstown: George and Venitia Eglington and Michelle Brourard
Glencairn Heights: Yvonne Ankerman
Kommetjie: Beth Louw and Valda Preen
George and Venitia's Studio: They had extended their double garage, added a dividing wall and created a space more than big enough for the two of them to paint in, including a stunning view over the Bay.
George paints lovely local scene in watercolour and Venitia paints great oil landscapes. Venitia kindly hosted coffee and great cheese scones.
Michelle's Studio has a wonderful large, warm and sunny courtyard studio with a Mediterranean feel.
Michelle painting wonderful abstracts in acrylic and watercolour landscapes.
Beth Louw paints mainly out doors and has a great spot in her house to display her paintings. Her gallery is open by appointment. Beth paints in oils, specialising in beautiful seascapes.
Valda Preen gives classes in her studio, on the beach in Kommetjie. A wonderful collection of her paintings where on view for us to look at. She kindly hosted tea and a scrumptious Chocolate cake.
Yvonne Ankerman's Studio in Glencairn heights overlooks False Bay. She has a collection of Pallet Knife flower paintings as well as "en Plein Air" landscapes. A batch of red underpainting canvases, drying and almost ready to paint on.
