Veld fire in Magaliesburg - Maree Clarkson

We were on our way to Magaliesburg the other day and to my amazement! a veld fire sweeping across the hills! Some areas that had not previously burnt were still brown and dry, but it always puzzles me how the fires start in good weather with no lightning. A passerby's cigarette...? We stopped and I did a quick sketch and finished it off from memory once we got home.


  1. Beautifully done, Maree! Quite often fires here start because of careless motorists, so I wouldn't be surprised.

  2. Thanks Kate, and we have the pedestrian problem as well.
