Painting of the seaside at Skoenies
2010 | Oil on Canvas

An oil painting of the ocean view from Schoenmakerskop (Schoenies), off the beautiful Port Elizabeth coastline. I actually took the reference photos back in 2008 and have been wanting to do a decent sea painting for a while now. It was a new challenge which I thoroughly enjoyed and certainly plan to do more in the future.

Also decided to have look at the Google Earth view of the location. Apparently the sea can become quite stormy from south-westerly winds being outside the sheltered Nelson Mandela Bay.
