Landscape oil painter

Stanford, South Africa

Hello. My name is Tracy Algar.

I live and work in the breathtakingly beautiful village of Stanford in the Overberg region of South Africa.

My tools of choice are a 4B pencil and cartridge paper for sketching, and oil paint and hog bristle brushes for painting.

I love painting outdoors, from life.

In my current series I am following the threads that connect me to this landscape, and weaving new ones to solidify the bond.
