Transkei Sunset

Transkei Sunset was one of my first acrylic paintings. It was a lesson in light and shadow, so here you can see we have a setting sun on the right hand side and closer to the front of the painting. This image is a bit small, but there is a person sitting on the stoep of the house on the left and whoever it is, is enjoying the last moments of the day. The strong oranges and yellows give off a lot of warmth here in the foreground, but it fades into the coolness of the faraway hills with the little African huts dotted across the landscape. It’s not meant to be a person but the shadows on the closest building on the right makes one look twice. Is there someone with a cloak loitering in the shadows or is my mind playing tricks on me?

Transkei Sunset is an acrylic painting on a stretched canvas and measures 203 x 305 mm or 6 x 8 inches and is available from our shop. If you would prefer something not quite as loose you may prefer Tree Near Stanford or even Canola Field, which both feature dead trees. Something completely different, that you may also wish to consider is Fire or Roses.

Whichever way you look at it we have a nice range of homely paintings done with heart and Soul. If you would like a favorite scene captured on canvas please feel free to contact us on and we will show you how we think we can make your dream a reality.
