‘Cloudehill 2’ immortalizes an aspect of the renowned Cloudehill Gardens viewed from a close vantage point. Recognizable plants, such as the complementary golden Rudbeckias and purple Verbenas, that overlap the dramatic Cordyline foliage provide a beautiful environment in which to contemplate. Restful, green hues unify the composition while dark tones create depth and enhance the vibrancy of colours.
This oil painting captures the essence of the Warm border viewed from another location. It is freely executed and lyrical mark-making. Yet this biophilic painting is more than a visual record. It is a celebration of nature’s beauty and the restorative power of gardens, so evident in current times.
