Artist's Description

Ink sketch with W&N watercolour in my Moleskine 200gsm ‘Nature journal’ A4 size
.
Not far from us, about 10km, is the Krugersdorp Game Reserve (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa), one of my favourite places to visit. We often go to the restaurant they have there and it’s great seeing all the animals along the way, about a kilometer drive through the Game Reserve till you get to the restaurant.

These Springbuck (Antidorcas marsupialis) were grazing not far off the road and didn’t even look up when I settled myself on the bonnet of my Land Rover to sketch them. Other great sightings are the Giraffe, but they prefer to keep their distance and I’ve taken a couple of photographs, so that will have to suffice for a sketch. Also Kudu, Eland, Springbok, Blue Wildebeest and other small buck often graze close to the road. The Lions and the Rhinos are kept in separate enclosures, accessible by drive-through tours via a special gate.
.
The woods were made for the hunters of dreams,
The brooks for the fishers of song;
To the hunters who hunt for the gunless game
The streams and the woods belong.
~Sam Walter Foss
