Lesley Charnock Gallery
Lesley Charnock is a South African artist who is well known for depicting essentially South African scenes in oil and acrylics. She works in an impressionistic style.
She loves to paint scenes of the Cedarberg, Klein Karoo or Pondoland. In the landscapes, Lesley captures the people; people in donkey carts, harvesting in the fields or simply walking down a dusty road. "In general I am drawn to the dramatic tonal values of figures in the bright African sunlight, the sharp contrast of the highlights and deep shadows. I enjoy the richness and texture of oils and the speed and versatility of acrylics!"
Lesley teaches, paints and displays her work in her gallery at Montebello. She also displays her work in several well known galleries in and around Cape Town. She also sells cards of her work and art prints on canvas.
