Garden Sketch


t is always a pleasure to draw and paint on site. When the site is our garden it somehow seems so much better. Time can slow down and work can progress as the day allows. In this case on the first day blooms where just beginning. Pencil was used for the first pass and then a wash of colour to isolate the elements. As well as adding colour to the work the wash also serves to tighten the canvas on the stretcher. The next day black paint and a brush were used in drawing the blooms.
