Japanese Garden, Bamboo.
A3 Moleskine Sketchbook, 29.7cm x 42cm or 16.5 inches x 12.5 inches.
I went on a tiny holiday camping up on Exmoor. On the way up we stopped at the Japanese Garden and Bonsai Nursery. A hidden jem in a tiny village just outside Newquay. If you are ever in that area it is well worth a visit, it is stunning. So peaceful and beautiful that I decided to devote my new largest Moleskine Watercolour Sketchbook to Cornish gardens.
In the Japanese Garden the contrasting textures and the wealth of greens were glorious. Neatly clipped cushions of Box roll silently beneath cascades of Bamboo tears. The crimson hews of Acers colour the light and a gentle breeze plays deep sonorous notes on a giant wind chime.
