It is so nice to see the sun in an English garden. It enlivens everything. The very green grass, the dappled shade, the shapes and layering of the foliage all take on new life when the clouds lift. And so it was late this afternoon, two days after the summer solstice.
Foxglove with a chili glaze. Coloured pencil on cartridge paper.
The ‘chili glaze’ arose from my limited palette – blue violet and warm orange don’t make lolly pink. AND a chili and ginger glaze was being prepared in the nearby kitchen, by someone else!
