Allotment Greens

Allotment Greens (30cm x 30cm mixed media on paper)

I thought that it would be fun to revisit an allotment I painted in the Spring and this is the result.

My original painting was titled ‘Allotment Blues’ – https://sarahjenningsartist.wordpress.com/2017/05/26/allotment-blues/

The plot has since greened up dramatically and I have tried to emphasise the enclosed feeling by purposely excluding the sky.  I was particularly attracted to the way the white flowers of the hollyhocks contrasted with dark shed on the left and the splashes of orange in the distance.  Still love the blue shed too!
