Experiencing the natural world through art
Throughout September I did 4 sessions with the Oak on the lawn. Waiting for the afternoon light and for it to slowly turn golden. This is the view from the opposite side of the oak to the Path to the Oak watercolour. I am sitting on the terrace next to the swimming pool to get a bit of height but you can only see the top of the lakeside poplars and not the lake itself.
From that spot on the terrace, turn to your left and you see this view of the Bronze garden. The water in the pool is tinted so makes for good reflections. Although I knew I wanted to paint the oak from here, I was waiting for autumn colour to arrive, so I did this painting first (in August).
