We in Somerset West have access to the a beautiful stretch of parkland along the Lourens River. Kids play in the river, families walk their dogs and it is place for quiet contemplation. This is such a special place. Looking up from the park we can appreciate the Boland mountains as well as our own iconic Helderberg peak. In 2020 I set out to paint a group of watercolours I could use to create a calendar, showcasing some of the scenes in the park.
