A painting workshop is always a bit nerve wracking as you are not sure what the response will be. Add a long trip to another location and the potential for hiccups grows. But thankfully artists are a keen bunch of people with a passion for painting. The group that I met in Greyton were all that and more.
Set in a stunning village, nestled alongside the Sonderend mountains in the Western Cape, Greyton has all the natural features for outdoor painting. I had the good fortune to host a workshop there recently and it was a pleasure to meet a dedicated and fun group of artists. We had an active day with lessons and practical painting outdoors. A sneaky Autumn wind arrived later in the day to keep us from getting too adventurous, but this was no problem. The weather behaved and we had a good time.
You can see a few highlights in the video below.
I am looking forward to the next workshop in Greyton and if you would like to stay in the loop for dates please add your name to my mailing list below.
A BIG thank you to all the participants for making this a lovely day. I hope to be painting with you again in the future.
