About "Namaqualand Minstrel"

I tried to capture the heat of the sun and the dry, dusty feel of Namaqualand, where I found this rural self-taught guitarist. He was "paying his way" as a builders helper, but his first love was clearly his guitar! He took a mid-day break to play for us in the heat, stopping briefly to ask if there was a "special request".
I worked from photographs which I'd taken.

About Jeanette

Jeanette Horn

I painted and illustrated for the advertising industry until my first solo exhibition in 1990. Subsequently I've been painting in oils, watercolours and pastels for exhibitions and commissions. I also illustrate children's books, the most recent being a children's fairy book written by long-time friend Margaret Roberts.
Portraits are one of my favourite expressions in painting. Being able to capture the personality of the person and transfer it onto canvas is a real challenge and, for me, one of the most rewarding of all the aspects of painting. I do accept commissions for portraits.
