another watercolour of the shaleband

Well here we go – I think the rocky area in the middle distance reads better.   This is where the plateau of the shale band falls away, down various krantzes and kloofs to the valley below.  I am still not sure about the slope in the foreground – I am not keen to put a whole lot of detail in there but it needs something…

    • Hey Tom – nice to see you here – thanks for the feedback – it is such a beautiful place – round that bend there is a small mountain hut which provides shelter when the storms blow through – definitely a place to which I would like to return soon.
