Rhubarb and Bean Poles
Here's yet another wonderful postcard! This time from Bridget in Scotland. This is done in acrylics and although the photograph hasn't done it justice, it makes it lovely loose and alive looking. There are no figures in the sketch, yet there is a sense of quite busyness, of readiness, and of hard work having been done. Anyone who loves gardening and growing will have an immediate empathy, and I love it!
This is Bridget's comment-
"April means lots of planting and bare earth but i love the pattern of the tall poles and the blue of the bins. The rhubarb had been allowed to go to seed and in flower - I liked the colour!"
I like the colour too, especially of the blue bins. It's a really unusual subject, and really cleverly done. It really stuck chords. Thanks Bridget!
