30 cm x 30 cm or 12 inches x 12 inches.
A couple of old pots overflowing with one of my favorite plants, scented geraniums. This one is "Fragrans" and has a nutmeggy, spicy scent. I have one that smells of "coke bottles", those weird little jelly sweets that you can buy, that one sits next to the Chocolate Cosmos in sweet shop corner! When you sit close by, drawing these beauties on a hot afternoon, the smell is lovely and as the afternoon dawdles into the evening the scents intensify and I don't know why, but it does and it is almost my favorite part of summer, scented summer nights.
I seem to be well and truly up the garden path as far as painting goes these days. I think it is the result of a post operative knee which has limited my walking a bit. Rather than tramping along cliff paths and across beaches I am sneaking about in gardens and sitting amongst the geraniums. I spent a very productive couple of hours in my friends garden yesterday ( drawing not gardening) so there will be a few more garden inspired paintings to come.
