Artist's Description

Ink sketch with colour wash on Daler-Rowney Acid-free Heavy Weight 220gsm (135lbs) sketching paper in hand-made sketchbook – sketched in my garden, Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa.
Family: Fabaceae : Sub family: Mimosoideae
.
My Acacia karroo trees are dressed in their full green summer finery and what fascinates me is that, as soon as the end of the day nears, the fine, feathery bi-pinnate leaves start closing, folding together until the tiny leaves are tightly scrunched together, opening again early morning, as if to welcome another summer’s day with open arms – wonderful!
.
Also known as sweet thorn, Karroo thorn, mimosa thorn, cockspur thorn, Cape gum (English); soetdoring, doorn boom (Afrikaans), this tree is native to southern Africa from southern Angola east to Mozambique, and south to South Africa.
