W&N Watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm

No one can understand the truth until he drinks of coffee’s frothy goodness.
~Sheik Abd-al-Kadir

A couple of times a week we take a drive to Magaliesburg for my daily fix – a cup of Caffé Latte! My sketchbook and watercolour pencils are always in my car, and yesterday afternoon the Magaliesburg Hotel (Gauteng, South Africa) out-did themselves – they had new Latte cups! I rushed to my car, fetched my sketch-book and pencils and did a rough sketch and colour of my gorgeous looking Latte before slowly indulging in its delicious aroma and taste. Heaven!

Once we got home, I did the sketch in bigger format on Bockingford watercolour paper and enjoyed fiddling, making a border and really having a good time!

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.
