My approach to painting the Pilton allotment

Like all my work, it wouldn’t be a traditional, accurate depiction as most artists do but an idea of the allotment. As I say in my ‘About me’ section:
“Accurate perspective however is all well and good, although in creative terms it can only deliver so much. I tend to adjust and push things about until it feels right. If that means geometric perspective is abandoned, then that’s fine. It’s all about the overall impression.”Essentially, I take a medieval and Early Modern approach to creating a painting. If a part is interesting to me then make it bigger. If it is not interesting to me, then make it smaller or just leave it out completely.

I will also adjust time, seasons, plants and crops. Here you can see spring Dandelions in with Autumn Pumpkins.

The reason for this is that when we think of an allotment or garden our minds leap to the parts that interest us the most so, Roses will be right next to Snowdrops. In essence we condense time in our minds. In response I condense time in my paintings. I also took the opportunity to condence scale too. I took in a whole landscape and added a bee in amongst it all. It may take a while to spot. This inspired the title ‘A bee in a country allotment’.

I really enjoyed painting our allotment and the project helped me keep a little saner throughout the lockdowns and ever-changing rules and regulations.

What is a giclee print?

Giclee is a very high quality print process used by galleries and artists for exclusive limited editions. This Giclee process uses 12 true pigment artist colours (ultra marine, ochre etc) rather than the standard four dye colours in normal printing, so Giclee delivers greater depth in colour, tonal values and no yellowing over time.
