Some art for the chateaux

  1. 1. Some art for the Chateaux<br />See<br />
  2. 2. I worked in acrylics and produced some canvasses which will be framed and hung in the hotel in the Czech Republic.<br />The landscape was inspired by a photograph in a tourist brochure. There are so many lovely old castles scattered all over the country.<br />

  4. 4. The “Africa Room” needed something well…, African? I was inspired by a watercolour I had seen of two zebras basking in the morning sun. <br />

  6. 6. I painted a large still life depicting a mundane kitchen scene in the foreground and a little something going on in the background between the cat and the critter. I incorporated a cat to represent the castle’s resident cat “Leeuwtjie” (little lion). I based the design on one point perspective to give a 3D feel. <br />

  8. 8. Lastly, the forests in the Czech Republic are full of mushrooms. Some are edible and others very poisonous. A quartet of 12” x12” canvases can be positioned in a grouping of pictures on a wall in a room or along a corridor.<br />
