Artist's Description

W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm
In a friend’s garden (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa)
“In pale moonlight / the wisteria’s scent / comes from far away.”
— Buson
A friend’s Wisteria is in full bloom and the scent is absolutely intoxicating! Just about the complete one side of her house is covered (there’s a pergola next to the wall) and it’s absolutely beautiful. The only problem is, the pergola is leaning dangerously close to a window from the weight of the plant and she says unfortunately she says she’s going to have to take it down. That would be a real pity, but hopefully she can just trim it back a lot and retain some of the original plant. It his taken years to get to that size and planting a new one would take forever to produce this wonderful show.
