The weather wasn’t perfect, but it didn’t rain and it was warm. Everyone worked outside at Longstock sketching feverishly. Tea and Lemon Polenta Cake saved the day after hours of hard work and concentration.
The wonderful work produced gives the impression of warmth, light, texture, colour. Incorporated in the work were tall grasses blowing in the wind against the prickly leaved artichokes, and a variety of other plants, architectural features and the everyday functions of a garden nursery.
The herbaceous border, backed by brick and flint wall, deep with many varieties of perennials, grasses, alchemilla mollis, roses and goodness knows what, was a source of inspiration for many.
The variety of work was very impressive; mixed media at every turn.
