Cape Town Results at Muizenberg

Postby Capetownsketchers » Sat Apr 20, 2013 10:24 am

We had a super autumn day, with about 14 sketchers. Image
We chose Muizenberg on the False Bay coast because of its history, and its seaside situation.
Image
We started at Het Posthuys, the oldest building on the Bay (circa 1650).
Image
We had a lecture on its history and the Battle of Muizenberg by Peter, of the historical society.
Image
The we moved to the station, which is a lovely building, just on 100 years old.
Image
Image
Image
There is a weird old, dilapidated signal hut on one platform
Image
After which we removed to the beach area
Image
and everyone painted or sketched our in the sun.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Of course capturing kids at play is great fun.
Image
Or just the busy beach scene
Image

Lots more sketches at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.382883121826311.1073741832.356256794488944&type=1&uploaded=4
