Artist: Dorothy du Plessis
Title: Mountain Scape
Size: 35 x 50 cm
Medium: Oil and oil pastel on paper
I travel frequently between the Eastern and Western Cape and almost always I am the driver. This landscape is not site specific. It is an impression of what I imagine I see along the way. I want to capture atmosphere, rather than place.
My method of painting is very layered. Photographs don’t capture the depth of colour or the layers of oil paint and pastel.
