Karoo Art

Karoo Ridge Conservancy Blog

It is not often I am blown away by a painting but on first glance of this beautiful landscape of rain in the Karoo it took my breath away. It completely captured this rare occurrence so well that I just couldn’t stop looking at it and the detail was just incredible. This painting now hangs in our home and is a constant reminder of hope. Rain will come!

The artist is Darryl Legg. He is well known for his aviation art, a passion of his which developed at a young age. He lives right here, on our doorstep, in Middelburg!

We recently asked him to do another landscape for us for our new guest accommodation. This is a typical Karoo scene from Karoo Ridge and what makes it so special is that the Nguni cattle featured are real individuals. Really special.
