Spring Colours at Spring Garden Show

Verdigris metalwork with embossed & etched decoration

Medium panel

I have set up my display stand at the Malvern Spring Gardening Show today. I'm showing my new colours for the first time....a duck egg blue with bronzed metalwork & chocolate brown with new verdigris finish. I'm really pleased with the look - it has given a 'fresh' feel to the work. Some of the pieces look quite ancient ...like they have been buried underground.

I think the contrast between the colours works really well. The inspiration may have come from my last Cornwall break... looking at some of the photos...particularly the fab garage door I found in St Ives
