Spring is in the air

My third article in the Garden Journal series in Leisure Painter this month


Glad to see my latest article in July’s issue of Leisure Painter magazine.  I write about my artist’s journal where I paint, draw and write about my garden through the seasons.  This month I write about the joys of Spring and how you might use collage to enhance your journal entries.

Clematis Montana


The other day I took this photo of some trailing clematis against the fence.  It’s inspiring me!  Reminded me of a painting I did a few years ago…

Extract from one of my favourite watercolours from a few years ago now.

There is so much happening in the garden at the moment.  New flowers emerging everywhere…it’s easy just to spend hours standing and staring.  But I’m working up to putting brush to paper.  Perhaps I’ll start with this clematis.  Stay tuned!
