Paint your own Pierneef and learn about him and his characteristic style. 

Jacob Hendrik Pierneef is one of South Africa's most well-know painters, known for his specific and characteristic style he painted the South African landscape with.  He had a way of simplifying images, without compromising a composition, he always produced a well-balanced image, accurately portraying the peaceful and tranquil environment of the African landscapes.  

As an element of nature, mountains display dominance in most landscape paintings. To Pierneef, the study and the inclusion of mountains are centered more around the idea of building blocks and constructions, as his mountain formations usually resemble structures of individual rocks piled onto one another.  Also, with his mountains, Pierneef captured beautiful tones, either warm or cold.  With the portrayal of Cape mountains, it is as if Pierneef gave preference to colder colours and tones for the background, to mimic the blue-grey appearance of the landscapes.  Renderings of Karoo mountains usually received a stroke of pink or orange to add a brighter feel.

This stunning 40 x 50cm version of his painting is not too hard and has 15 colours.  It gives a wonderfully vibrant canvas.  Each box contains a stretched, printed and numbered canvas, paint, brushes and a page detailing the numbers for an extra reference.
