Squerryes Court - A Commission

Watercolour: 58cm (h) x 39cm (w)

I was thrilled to be given a commission to paint this beautiful estate this summer. It has been on my radar for many years ... a familiar attraction in my neighbourhood. I finally had the opportunity to visit Squerryes Court and its stunning grounds, with my client, on a warm May day with my camera and sketchbook in tow. My client's daughter was fortunate to be getting married in September and her wedding gift from her parents was to be a painting of the location of her wedding day. The overall impression was to be loose, colourful and romantic. A wonderful and fulfilling challenge.
