Artist's Description

W & N watercolours on Bockingford 300gsm

“A lot of people go through life like they are rowing a boat. They look at where they have been (the PAST), rather than where they are going (the FUTURE).”

For this painting I was inspired by Elizabeth Kendall’s beautiful photograph A boat in the harbour -

Blessed with a coastline almost 3 000 kilometres long, and numerous dams, lakes, rivers and streams, South Africa has plenty to offer the fishing enthusiast. From game fish in two oceans to trout in mountain streams, there is something to challenge and entertain everyone.
