Twixt earth and sky the mountain sits
Magnificent, mighty, massive and true,
With roots sunk deep in the secrets of earth
And summit ascending to heaven’s bright blue.
Close to heaven in light-filled skies,
Close to earth and deeper than sea,
The mighty mountain speaks its worth
Silent and certain: This is me!
This sketch I did of the view of Table mountain from Bloubergstand in CapeTown. The time was 7.45pm in the evening and the sky was lit with the warmest of evening light. Phalo blue sky meeting mixes of Cadmiun and Alizerin were just magnificent. Painted on 300gsm Bockingford paper with W/N paints
