Mini-Mini ‘Cornish’ Gardens
Lots of plants like weeds, mosses, grasses, wild-flowers and cultivated plants grow in odd places - they pop up randomly in, for instance, cracks in pavements. ‘Pop-up’ plants can be overlooked when we’re going about our normal lives.
Take a few photographs if you are an artist who likes ‘mini worlds’ when you are out exercising or in your own garden. Here’s a few we found earlier on our daily walk... You might like to bring several of your images together to ‘plant’ your own ‘mini-mini Cornish garden’ in your sketch books. Watercolour painting and pencil drawing are good to create subtle details, pastels are great too for producing expressive marks and smudges in your 2. D. garden works.
Enjoy being creative and invite your household members to join in too. Other friends and family could be involved online. Take care and Stay Well. Iain Robertson & Clare Wardman
