Relaxing in the garden


Lovely and a lovely garden too !

Lovely painting. (I have the same garden chairs - lasted,e over 20 years now.

Lovely sketch and garden

Full of Spring sunshine - lovely.

Like how you have interpreted it Diana, yes greens can be difficult as well as the Foliage!!!

Thank you Anne. It’s a very long garden and I rarely venture into the bottom bit. Pretty ‘natural’ in design 😂 You Linda. I got the table and chairs from a junk shop a couple of years ago. They are so comfortable. Love them. Thank you Heather. I love listening to the birds. Thank you Anne and David. It’s been hot enough to need sun cream on today. Lovely

Love your natural rendition of this charming garden Diana. It’s so lovely to enjoy being outside at last without, wearing loads of layers.

Lovely, Diana!

Lovely interpretation Diana. We have a patch at the bottom of our garden that I rarely visit, I call it the wildlife area but I’m just lazy😊

Thank you Carole. Yes, it’s absolute bliss to be outside and warm. Thank you very much Shirley. Thanks Katy and yes, we have a wildlife area too 👍👍. I live in a conservation area so that’s my excuse 😂

A lovely painting and how nice to sit outside. I have been gardening all weekend....heaven!

Thank you Diane. I envy your gardening enthusiasm. Absolutely beautiful day today ☀️

Lovely spontaneous sketch, love how you have shown the blossoms.

Thank you Anjana. I used a bit of masking fluid this time. Thank you Tessa. It was absolute luxury sitting outside in the sunshine

There is nothing like it’re own slice of heaven, that’s what my garden is to me. Love the treatment of the foliage, simplified washes.....very effective.
