    Very nice depth Maria. If this was once your home, then painting is not your only passion, looks like you have a green thumb as well. Beautiful work.

  • thanks jim, yes i enjoyed creating that garden it was a nice flat block with a hundred year old house on it, but no garden, just grass.Not quite so garden energetic these days though!

    Beautiful! I admire how you’ve done this on the black paper too. (I just cannot get on with the black, but I see so many other artists who do wonderful things with it). You have achieved great light contrasts. Top job Maria.

  • thanks lynda, i used to buy it by the roll, i loved doing still life on it, i find it doesnt really suit landscape as your shadows usually are not so dark as the black.
