Reddits, Grahamstown


Harry Owen, renowned poet from Grahamstown organises a poetry evening every Friday at a restaurant there called Reddits. Monks, students, artists and poets find themselves sipping sherry and listening to many such wordsmiths.
I had the pleasure of being there during the launch of Harry Owen's poetry collection, Non Dog.
This rough watercolor on a hand made paper of the venue is dedicated to Harry Owen and his merry friends at Grahamstown.

  1. I love this: it's brooding, enigmatic and sensual. Wouldn't you want to read your poetry here?

  2. This is lovely & has a soft feeling to it. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. i do not know much about arts but this is really good . by using only fewer colours you have produced an effect which is ...soothing and soft . ravindra

  4. the colour of gold has a liquid effect that spills the taste of sherry to the viewers.
