'A Garden in July'

Inspired by Great Comp Garden

A series of paintings inspired by the Great Comp Garden, near Sevenoaks, Kent. Designed and constructed by the Scottish civil engineer Roderick Cameron from Strathaven and his wife Joy, this seven acre garden I think reflects the spirit of Palmer's response to the Kentish landscape somehow. I love its sense of space and drama. The trees so carefully placed are characters in their own right. They stand as architectural forms allowing blocks of vivid plant colour to orchestrate an ever changing array of long and short views as you walk through the garden. A sensory delight. More about this project at my blog 'A Garden in July'.
