Quinces at Peckover House, in watercolor

Summary: A small water colour, 6"x9", of quinces growing in the garden of Peckover House. Opposite Peckover House is the early home of Oactavia Hill, the originator of the "Green Belt" idea, co-founder of the National Trust and pioneer of social housing in the UK

quinces at peckover houseThis is the last of three paintings that I have finally finished. This one I started in the garden of Peckover House, Wisbeach, East Anglia. I have strengthened the shadows, completed some leaves that were white paper, and emphasised the colour on the stems. The predominant orange/yellow/green palette pulls it all together I think. Just a little bit of “spatter” at the end was put in to break up the smooth graduated washes on the quinces.
