Hermanus: from the edge

Introducing a small series of abstract landscapes inspired by sketches made en-plein air on the Cliff Path and at the New Harbour. I intend to add to the series as I continue to explore and examine the landscape on my doorstep.

Cliff Path 1 & 2 and Hermanus New Harbour are available to view at Sumaridge Wine Estate in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley.

All works available for sale. Email me to enquire about delivery.

Abstract Landscape Collage

One night last week we went down to Hermanus New Harbour just before sunset for me to do some sketching and for Arthur (the reason I’ve got so into outdoor painting lately) to take some photographs.

Next time I go to the New Harbour to sketch, I’m going to take a fold-up chair along, because as you can see in the photographs above the bench is rather grotty and looks like it’s been used extensively as a chopping board for bait.

I brought home five little sketches that I created standing up with a little clipboard as my drawing board.

I ripped these sketches up to create the two collages below in my sketchbook. Watch the video above to see the process.
