The Emmarentia Dam in South Africa


Thankyou for this beautiful watercolour postcard. Over the exchange I've got to know a little of South Africa and its landscape through Cathy's sketches and its been quite a surprise - not at all what I'd imagined. This view towards the Emmarentia Dam wall includes the Sea Scouts Hut which is rather odd as the sea is many miles away!
I always admire Cathy's figures and this card includes two - man and duck. These add to the atmosphere as do the beautiful greens and the skillful way the water has been painted.



A Fuschia to end this wonderful exchange.

One last vibrant painting of this beautiful park we've come to know so well.

A really beautiful water color. I am not sure whether this is the last post in the exchange or not. But if it was it would make for a great final statement.

It is very inviting to take a seat on the bench to look back and contemplate the joy of sketching over the last year.

I want to say thank you to my fellow sketchers all over the world, it has been a great and inspiring experience to be part of this.

I agree Martin; this is a fitting painting that represents a contemplative moment reflecting on a wonderfully special year of sharing with a precious group of artists.
