UNDER THE APPLE TREE


It was not what I intended to do but could not resist painting my three friends in this beautiful garden as they, in turn, painted the view behind me.

KITCHEN GARDEN - HIGH SUMMER

I have always enjoyed painting gardens but they present their own problems. There is hardly ever any distance and tend to be made up almost entirely of middle distance and foreground so unravelling the profusion of vegetation and variety of greens can be difficult but I guess that's what I like about them.
Kitchen Garden - High Summer was painted on location (en plein air) is oil on canvas board and measures 30.5cm x 40.5cm.
