garden design


 Last year sometime in August, we visited the Boomkamp garden center in Borne here in Holland. The purpose of our visit was that our family friend was looking for a garden design for their newly purchased house.   Being one of the eight top garden centers in the Netherlands (website here), Boomkamp is therefore a good place to visit for our friend. There, we had seen a number of garden designs in which we enjoyed very much.
For this painting, I used the photograph of one of the garden designs as reference. What we see from this painting is only one corner of the model garden. This is in watercolor and the size is 30x40 cm. Happy art days to all for the coming week.

  9. Ciao Cora,
    a me piacciono sempre i vasi, danno l'idea di nascondere qualcosa di misterioso, e in questo dipinto hanno una presenza fondamentale per un'atmosfera affascinante.
    Ciao, abbracci, Floriana

  10. Ciao Cora, grazie per la tua visita e per il commento che mi hai lasciato. Complimenti per i tuoi ultimi lavori che ho trovato davvero notevoli. Questi vasi li trovo molto belli, mi piace la loro diversa dimensione e posizione, un bell'acquerello! Ciao!
