Barchill Farm garden



acrylic inks (coloured), Artbars and a touch of watercolour, all water based, plein air in an A3 watercolour pad.

and detail



Sketching in the gorgeous gardens of the farm with a couple of friends - a lovely afternoon of art and chat. I took materials that wouldn't let me get 'tight' as recent work was heading that way and I wanted it to stay really loose.

Re: Barchill Farm garden

Those gardens are beautiful and you did them justice!

I think you accomplished your goal, there's a nice balance of looser strokes with defining ones, it's a very charming effect.

Re: Barchill Farm garden

thank you both we are going back in September hopefully to see all the seedheads. It was farmland and so everything is so lush and tall - the fennel was over 7 foot high.
