Sketching Attadale

A few weeks ago I did a wonderful botanic art course at Inverewe gardens and came away feeling inspired to paint and draw more botanical subjects. I have quite a large garden myself, spring has come late this year and I had a limited choice of subjects.


So I asked Joanna MacPherson at Attadale Gardens if I could sketch at their gardens from time to time. Joanna was kind enough to say yes, so, my friend Lorna and I spent a wonderful afternoon walking and sketching amongst the Rhodedendrons and hosts of daffodils.

Sketching botanicals outside is quite a different experience from working on one speciman. I’m learning loads though and feel very lucky that I have such a wonderful place to practice!
