This painting is glowing with warm summery colours; orange, yellow, and magenta, against many shades of green.    It was painted following a sketching day as part of a residency at Avebury Manor National Trust.   The garden was blooming and full of colour, with dahlias, Astrantia and many others.  Touches of blue cornflowers fill the gaps.  It shows an intriguing view of the Manor peeping over the stone walls.

It is painted loosely; some of the garden is semi-abstract and soft around the edges.  This contrasts with the sharper edges of the architecture, though even this has only minimal detail.  The painting is 12 x 16 inches (31cm x 41cm) on a slim canvas (1cm depth).  It is sold unframed.
