Another fine morning at Dartington Hall, this time in May 2012, I have seated myself on the semi-circular stone bench on the far side of the Tilt Yard at the back of the Great Hall.
Dorothy Elmhirst planted this 'Sunny Border' herself and I am informed it was one of her most favourite places.
I painted in soft pastel on a Canson Mi-Teintes textured grey paper to underly the feeling of sunny but cold. I worked on site (on the stone seat and it WAS cold!) and from a photograph taken at the same time; in total the painting period stretched 3 weeks.
