Tropical Garden Tresco

Tropical Garden Tresco

I like the way you have chosen these colours, and simplified the very complicated foliage. The view through the archway is lovely.

Thanks for your comments - the foliage was quite a challenge!

This is a terrific painting. Good composition belying how difficult the subject matter is. The juxtaposition of colors is brilliant. Wow.

Tresco Abbey Gardens inspired this painting. I enjoyed the tropical nature of the plants very much - their wild exuberance , exaggerated shapes,unexpected textures and colours all increased the sense of exploration. The small gap in the hedge provided a glimpse through to a different more controlled sort of planting; a marvellous foil to the unpredictability of everything in the foreground.
