The work in the garden series has a feeling of Chinese whispers about it. As I have started to bring together the images for the first time I can see the subtle changes over time. The brush marks and colour palette have changed as the content in the pieces has changed. New plants have been incorporated into the garden and work has become more intricate and layered. The recent move to working on a consistent scale, 100cm x 120cm or similar has had allowed me to pursue a similar approach to each painting but ensure changes has been pursued rather than working on a different scale or surface and having that as another challenge to overcome.
