SA chronicles 4: Architecture

Some architecture…

A beach house in Vermont, Hermanus.


Khyalitsha, township north of Cape town. I took photo’s and then composed this sketch afterwards from it.


A historic house in Van Riebeeckstreet, Stellenbosch.


Another beautiful oldie…


Sunday, after church in Paarl, (the third oldest town in SA), when everybody else was enjoying tea, I sketched out in the heat, until I gave up and fled to the tea as well. So this sketch doesn’t show the lovely new gothic revival architecture of the church, which was built in 1842.


The old Mother church(Moederkerk) in Stellenbosch, with it’s outer buildings with gables and thatched roofs, typical of Cape Dutch architecture. Since 1679, it has been part of the town, established by Simon van der Stel. arg6.jpg
