Artist's Description

W&N watercolour in hand-crafted sketchbook with linen satin-finish paper
.
Here in South Africa most of the landscape is still barren and bare after winter’s onslaught, but Spring is making a concerted effort to show herself – her reign is normally short-lived, quickly being ousted by Summer’s determination to make the most of the months ahead until Autumn has her turn again.
.
The garden like a lady fair was cut
That lay as if she slumbered in delight,
And to the open skies her eyes did shut;
The azure fields of heaven were ‘sembled right
In a large round set with flow’rs of light:
The flowers de luce and the round sparks of dew
That hung upon their azure leaves, did show
Like twinkling stars that sparkle in the ev’ning blue.
~ Giles Fletcher
