W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm – done from my imagination

A garden path somewhere in Tarlton (Gauteng, South Africa)
“After all the weather was ideal. They could not have had a more perfect day for a garden-party if they had ordered it. Windless, warm, the sky without a cloud. Only the blue was veiled with a haze of light gold, as it is sometimes in early summer. The gardener had been up since dawn, mowing the lawns and sweeping them, until the grass and the dark flat rosettes where the daisy plants had been seemed to shine. As for the roses, you could not help feeling they understood that roses are the only flowers that impress people at garden-parties; the only flowers that everybody is certain of knowing. Hundreds, yes, literally hundreds, had come out in a single night; the green bushes bowed down as though they had been visited by archangels.”
- Katherine Mansfield

I am a watercolorist living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa. The inspiration for my art is the wonderfully rich variety of Fauna and Flora to be found throughout this beautiful country.

    This is just how it’s starting to look in my own yard Maree. The “knock Out” roses (old fashion bush roses) are all blooming with variations from pink to magenta to full deep red. Beautifully painted.

  • Aaah, lucky you! Thank you Jim, maybe, one day, when I don’t have chickens any more, my garden can get to this point – until then there’s not much hope!
