Great Dixter, Sussex


I don't think my words, or my scanner, can do justice to this magnificent card from Katherine. It's a symphony of colour. Katherine has a unique way of blending and layering her colour pencils so that all the colours are visible and appear to radiate off the paper. The reds in the shadow areas have an incredible effect on the greens and how she has managed to capture that soft, warm, hazy sunlight, I will never know!

Thank you Katherine, for this beautiful card!

Katherine...this is truly one of my favorite cards of yours...really well done! Such nice capture on the tips of the topiaries catching the back light and yes, lovely play with color in the dark greens as well as beautiful depth in the little pathway...creates a labyrinthine feel! Lovely card!

I'd just love to be there and meandering through the amazing shapes and colours. A truly wonderful piece of coloured pencil work.

'tis beautiful. This makes me think you should be doing a series of these wonderful garden studies as postcards. Brilliant.

This is definitly one of may favorites. The colors, the textures, the shadows and light areas all are amazing. It makes me want to play in the maze and it is truly eye candy for all who see it!

Many thanks for all your comments. It turned out rather better than I expected at the beginning given all those saturated darks!

This is a beauty for sure; however the card I got from Katherine is a real treasure. I agree Katherine a series is calling out to be done.
