Shoot it, Paint it. A Corner of Sissinghurst in Kent

Last weekend in the beautiful October sunshine we visited Sissinghurst Castle gardens in Kent. It is always a lovely place to visit and it is good to go there in Spring, Summer and Autumn.

We enjoyed a short sit down on a bench in the garden and took a few photos. This one I have now painted a watercolour of..

I have tried to recapture the colours of summer, so excuse the liberties taken!

I hope you like this very short post.

The Blue Danube post has had an update too with a painting of the Charles Bridge in Prague added.

Happy travels to you all!

Brian

Most of my paintings are painted from photos that I have taken, or taken by others. This blog shows some paintings from Yvonne's and my travels together. Have look at my other Blog www.aquarellesdefrance.wordpress.com

  1. This is fantastic! I will have to put this on my list of places to visit. You are an incredible artist. Do you sell your work?

  2. Hi Brian

    This is a great picture of Sissinghurst and I’d love to use a digital image of it to illustrate a short article I’ve just written for Buddhist friends to illustrate a point I’ve made about form and wildness both being needed in spiritual practice (just as in gardening, here!) I won’t be selling the article, just sharing it. If I credit you fully on the picture, would this be OK with you? And (if it is!) do you ahve a higher res version of the image which I might use?

    All good wishes
