Enjoy the scenery by Maree  Clarkson

W&N watercolour on DalerRowney 200gsm – no preliminary sketching

The dam at Spring Farm (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa) is always full and I’ve often wondered where the water comes from. today I was told there’s a natural spring further up on the property that has been slowly running at the same, unchanged speed for years. This is also the place where I often sit and watch the cattle and do some quick sketches – there’s always something new to discover.

“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.”

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.
