Wakehurst consists of over 500 acres of wild woodland and is part of the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. I spent a day exploring and sketching this amazing place in the heart of Sussex.
Sunny afternoon sketching in Trafalgar Square
I didn’t get to see my brother and sister for over a year because of the pandemic (Skype/Zoom doesn’t count!). As soon as Scotland and other regions opened up, my brother and I drove up to Scotland – it was a long time coming! I had my sketching kit ready record as much I can. My sister’s bakes are Devine! She made Sri Lankan-style pineapple gateau and Victoria sponge. So we had cake for breakfast! My 7 year old niece…
Kew Gardens is home to some majestic old trees, some of which are several thousand years old! This mighty oak reminded me of something out of a fairytale. As I sat sketching, I was almost expecting it to come to life and unfurl its beautiful twisted trunk.
