To brighten the dullest day – Inktense
This is an interpretation of part of our rear garden and shows a “Pieris Japonica”. I painted this almost by accident. I was finding it impossible to work indoors as my studio faces the front of the house where a neighbour had builders tearing up their front drive. I retreated to the rear of the house, out into the garden and, armed with a set of Inktense pencils, a dish of water and an easel then settled down to a peaceful spell. Five minutes later – Why are the local kids so noisy? Why do they have to scream and shriek? Why am I getting more and more grumpy as I get older? Answers on a large postcard please. Time to go back indoors.
