Painting project

Part 1 Julie King introduces this month’s painting from a photograph, showing a scene from the gardens at Burrswood in Kent


Practise two techniques for painting with line & wash

How to draw and paint a garden scene

How to paint successfully from photographs

Your reference photograph for this month’s project: a wall of colour at Burrswood

I have chosen the beautiful grounds of Burrswood to illustrate the pen and wash technique in this month’s project. The garden provided a haven of peace and tranquillity with stunning views overlooking undulating fields, woodlands, ponds, rockeries and flowers contrasted with the architectural elements of an imposing Wealden stone house, the contemporary chapel, winding walls and planters tumbling with colour.

I hope the following information on techniques will help you to tackle the project, interpreting it in any way you wish. Take the risk, loosen up and practise sketching with either the line or tonal method directly onto a sheet of paper or begin with a minimal pencil sketch as a guide as shown in Garden Leading towards the Chapel (page 22).
