A scene in Tarlton (Gauteng, South Africa), no preliminary sketching – W & N watercolours on Bockingford 300gsm – 12″ × 8″
.
Every time I have some moment on a seashore, or in the mountains, or sometimes in a quiet forest, I think this is why the environment has to be preserved.
- Bill Bradley
.
We’re still having a lot of rain here in Tarlton and my palette is definitely being affected by this – I’m drawn to all the wet and cool colours as we haven’t been seeing much of the sun at all. Our dams are filled to capacity, rivers are swollen and causing flooding and, of course, the gardens are smiling!
.
I’m not sure whether us humans are all to blame for ‘global warming’ and the strange weather patterns, because Mother Earth has her own natural cycles of warming and freezing, but the mess that we humans make on this planet is of major concern to me. Isn’t a beautiful landscape enough incentive for each and every one of us to take responsibility for our mess in order to preserve it….?
