Adding texture, and layers and layers of colour. Again it's the greens that dominate. One of my favourite colours, and a very favourite painting colour at the moment.
Inspired by Andrew Marvell's poem The Garden, the texture and greens began to turn into a little garden of my own.
Adding lines of the second stanza of the poem, which I liked especially:
Fair Quiet, have I found thee here,
And Innocence, thy sister dear!
Mistaken long, I sought you then
In busy companies of men.
Your sacred plants, if here below,
Only among the plants will grow.
Society is all but rude,
To this delicious solitude.
You can find the full text of the poem here.
I love texture and colour. My "garden" isn't so obvious, it's an abstract garden, but it's all there, the textures of the grass and flowers, the greens of the grass and foliage, the reds, pinks, blues and whites of the flowers, and eve nsome golden sun beames shining through the leaves.
My own secret little garden, all overgrown, full of flowers, and with lots of shadowy corner and sunny places.
I found it really difficult to process the images. It looks all a bit messy and somewhat yellowy here, but it does actually look a lot better in reality. I'm really quite of my little secret garden.
