The drawings below show mostly paintings of "Cape Dutch" buildings. At the time that I did them, there was a decided bias against this type of painting and subject matter. Which was a real pity, as the architecture is magnificent and this technique captured the essence of it. My copy of De Bosdari and an old Triumph motorcycle, enabled me to visit many of  the hidden treasures of the Cape. These are some of the more accessible examples!
