How much? Free
Unfold an artist's easel, untie a bundle of brushes, unleash the artist within. In the town of Kaapsehoop a painter can unpack a canvas to take in the valleys and hills from a natural narrow plateau for a studio. Leaves brush softly against each other carrying an earthy whisper through the breeze; listen. Colours blend on a palette in the dusty light of the highveld haze; envision. Hues perfect themselves on the horizon; contemplate. Stay hopeful for the beating hooves of wild horse herds that roam the hills; observe.
Be strictly subjective to the landscape form; free. Undisturbed; rest your expression and nourish your creative self in a space absent of judgement with very little chance of passers-by passing by. Hang your eyes in a gallery of grass with rock formations for garden statues. The town, once dusted with gold history is set out in the clearing amongst scattered rock fields that envelope the escarpment.
The striking formation of sandstone boulders portraying itself as oversized table and chairs set out in a tree encompassed outdoor clearing was once referred to as 'Duiwels Kantoor' (Devil's office). The name burnt off like the morning mist exposing a soulful meeting place of stone and scenery that contrary to its dark spirited misrepresentation is spiritual in its setting. Lose yourself in the idyllic middle of nowhere, find your breath.
