NAMIBIAN TOUR 1 – WATERCOLOUR SKETCHES

P1020639(1)a

Today on the beach at Swakopmund on the Atlantic seaboard and a day off from the tour, having spent the last few days in the Namib Desert climbing dunes and doing the odd bit of painting as can also be seen below. I might even get to do some of the animals if they stand still long enough.

    • I havent seen any flowing water in Namibia yet, but old riverbeds seem to provide trees with enough moisture to thrive. However, as the population is draining the aquifers of water for domestic use I wonder how long these trees will stay green.

  1. Yes, it certainly provides a metaphor for the persistence of life. However this can be countered by the number of dead, skeletal trees that abound, indicating the futility of going against the flow.
