- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, American Poet in the 19th century, 1807-1882)
A daily practice of sketching and painting gives you a chance to exercise the big three P's - practice, practice, practice!
Passing by Spring Farm on our way to Magaliesburg, I once again took the chance to do a quick sketch of the dam from a different angle, finishing it off once we got home. We've had plenty of rain and the dam has crept over its banks, forming vleis on both sides.
(In geography of South Africa a vlei is a shallow seasonal or intermittent lake. The word is of Dutch/Afrikaans origin meaning 'pond', 'marsh', and is pronounced as "flay". Vleis vary in their extent according to the fall of rain or dryness of the season.)
