This beautiful part of Richmond Park has a secret area planted by a women called Isabella. It has wonderful Rhodedendrums and flowers blooming in spring with their reflections captured here in the still water. The surrounding trees are also reflected in the water and bushes and bullrushes growing by the edge. It is a truly beautiful spot and carries the legacy of Isabella. My painting/drawing is in pastels which is a sympathetic medium to this subject. As pastels are a medium which has pure pigmentation . I have tried to capture the magic go this place. The pastel is dry mounted on cardboard and is ready to be framed.
