This is the second of my allotment pieces. The combination of the blue shed and pots and the vivid spring green grass was something I knew immediately that I wanted to paint. Lots of fun! Available to buy here http://sarahjenningsartist.com/gallery_698663.html
I’ve lots more recent paintings to share that I have not yet found time to put here so expect a flurry of posts over the course of the next few days.
A few weeks ago I started visiting local allotments with the idea of painting the growing season and general allotment life. All I managed at the time was to make a few sketches and take a few photos. This is the first of two paintings based on the sketches. I was attracted by the empty chair and wondered how many times it had been wearily sat upon for that well-earned mug of tea. I plan to go back with my paints next time and know that given the recent weather the scene will have completely transformed!
