Thank you ShanghaiSarah! This is one of my own faves, it came out great, getting the fur and the whiskers in watercolour was quite a challenge.

Hi Sarahharas, thanks, we just call it Afrikaans, yes that is my first language!

:iconsarahharas07:
Sarahharas07 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh great it resembles Dutch a lot, which is my first language.
I thought so because of your name which sounds very Dutch as well :D

:iconwillemsvdmerwe:
WillemSvdMerwe Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012
Yes my ancestors arrived here from Holland in the late seventeenth Century ... we've been here pretty much ever since! Afrikaans is close to Dutch, I can understand Dutch but not speak it, and it sounds rather strange to me if I hear it.

:iconsarahharas07:
Sarahharas07 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Right. Goes the same for me, I have to pay a lot of attention to understand Afrikaans, but it's such a lovely language to my ears. It sounds rather funny I don't mean to insult you of coarse. The written Afrikaans is fantatstic too and I suppose I can understand the meaning.
