Garden Pattern, Sissinghurst

Painting Description

This is one of the views from the top of the Jacobean Towers at the most complete garden in England, Sissinghurst. The sweep of the circle was created in the 1930’’s by Vita Sackville-West and her son, Nigel, with the use of a length of cord. At that point this outstanding garden was just getting started in the remains of a great house from the 1600’’s. Only the stables and the towers remain of the main original house. Gardens of various colours or varieties are housed inside the remains of the rooms. Looking down from the tower that stands in the garden, the patterns of the various rooms emerge very sharply. This painting from early spring focuses on the bulls-eye hedge. I tried to preserve the geometrical feeling that must have been considered by Vita and Nigel when they composed the garden.
