‘Gift’ oil on gessoed board

I have recently been making a little oil painting based on honeysuckle studies from a garden I have been visiting. I have also looked at an old charcoal drawing and painting from a long time ago which also inspired and am including them here. Watch this space for more little paintings or for more added to this- not sure yet.

Garden sketches

Here are a couple more sketches from the wonderful garden I have been going to that has so inspired me after lockdown. This has truly been a liberation, it is so beautiful like the secret garden. This time I was in a different location in this large space. The trees and planting captivated me. I am making a small oval painting inspired by some flowers there which I will share soon once it tells me it is done. Watch this space!
