Although I only have a small garden plot at home I am a very keen gardener. However I always find plenty of inspiration to paint – in other people’s beautiful gardens and my local parks. Painting in oils on large boards gives me the best opportunity to capture the vibrant scenery and stunning shapes and colours I see around me.
Sitting quietly painting outdoors “en plein air” takes a bit of organising, especially when I am paint in oils. However the results can be very satisfying and well worth the effort. But successfully getting a freshly painted oil picture back home at the end of the day needs careful transporting. And,it needs patience, to wait approx 3 days for my painting to dry in order for me to continue working on the picture.
All pictures are approx. 16 x 20 ins and painted in oils on board
