Backyard in Greyton

This week I was away with a dear friend of mine to inspect property he has just recently inherited. Allot can be told of the trip but for now suffice it to note that Greyton is one of our naturally beautiful settings, the town itself seems ensconced in mountains, which range I am unsure now. But I plan to look into it more. Truly a plein air treasure trove, and I have been very captured by my surrounds of late.

So, I got to paint on two occasions with my little waters and one of which I was pleased enough to post.. its the little peak that guards the end of Lincolns rectangular garden. It was quite fun.. especially noting how everything was in motion, clouds and the orange glow which slowly diminished. Watercolours can be so rewarding, and frustrating and intriguing..

Definitely a place to go back to, and much learnt in my process so far. More plein air rambles to come
