The Lourens River flows out of the Hottentots Holland mountains and through our town. There are very few places set up to make the most of the river. There is a bar and a coffee shop or two maybe – but for the most part I think the town planners would far rather stick it in a pipe. The river eventually reaches the sea in False Bay, not far from The Pipe where we surf.
Fortunately for us in the town some far-sighted people created sportsfields and parks along the banks of the river. Radloff Park is a very special place over the river from some of the farms in the area.
This blog posting is intended to capture the paintings in a series I have started on the river.
The original for these paintings are for sale on my Gallery page.
I am also selling high quality (giclee) prints of these paintings.
Here is the first painting in the series:
I have also completed a second painting in the series.
Here is a watercolour of a pool and a rapid on the river in Radloff Park. My little dog Luna (The Woof) loves to fetch sticks in the pool. She loves to fetch sticks anywhere which can make walks a little stressful when the river is full.
