Hi. I’m 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.
9th August 2022 at The Zesty Lemon Restaurant, Sir Robert Stanford Estate, a plein air landscape painting workshop in the beautiful Overberg.
Monday morning painting classes in Stanford. More info here.
