The Orangery

Mixed Media

It was fascinating to observe the reactions of visitors at my exhibition. My framer, Danielle, did such a fantastic job with the frame and I was thrilled with the result. This is very definitely a mixed media project. I used mountboard as my support and painted the interior using watercolour, gouache, charcoal, ink and pastel. I wanted to capture the elegance of the space and the light streaming in through the high windows. It is worth visiting the Orangery at West Kensington .... their scones are wonderful. If anyone out there could direct me to similar interiors then I will be forever grateful.
