A Pastoral Study of Winter Colours

Paardelaagte Farm Landscape. Watercolour 340 x 530 mm.

On the 12th July we travelled to a neighbouring farm, Cyferfontein to buy mealies for feeding our sheep. There were some wonderful scenes around the farm that I photographed, and more on our way home along part of the Orange River as far as the farm Paardelaagte. I returned home fuelled with inspiration for painting a set of the beautiful scenery we encountered. I am not really sure if I am finished, as there are  a couple more scenes that still tempt me; but I thought it an appropriate time to post these six pictures anyway.

Cyferfontein Farm Studies. Watercolour. 2 x 350 x 250 mm.

While painting I listened to many wonderful sermons from a host of enlightened and eloquent preachers, and I am delighted to have access to their insights into Scripture, and the Holy Word of God. Many of the sermons are available to download free of charge. Here are a few of the links: R.C.Sproul, John MacArthur, David Pawson, Free Audio Sermons.
