Rocks and Trees

I am starting to play and explore more and more with watercolour and of course combining it with my drawing materials. These are some smallish sketches (smaller than A4 size) I did last week in preparation for some bigger works.

Loving the fringe arts!

I think I joined in with the Fringe Arts from their start. And it's been amazingly exciting, fun and inspiring to be part of things! First there was the pop-up at Spier Contemporary at the Cape Town City Hall, and then they popped up at Cape Creative Exhibition in Greenpoint Main Road during the soccer madness, and now they're in the Alfred Mall at the Waterfront. Not to even mention their more permanent space launching very soon at Spier Wine Estate!

But wait, let me tell me what you SHOULD NOT MISS tomorrow, on Thursday, 14 October. Starting at 5pm Chantal Louw and Thessa Bos will be unveiling ceramic hearts decorated and modified by local artists (of which I am one!) and sell them to the public, with some of the proceeds going towards the AVA Artreach Fund which constantly assists South African artists in creating and exhibiting their art.

So don't miss this!
Thursday, October 14 · 5:00pm - 8:00pm
Alfred Mall, Victoria & Alfred Hotel, V & A Waterfront

Christiaan Diedericks Solo show in Cape Town

I'm really looking forward to this solo show and book launch by one of the artists who's been an inspiration to me since my school days:
