First Garden

Beyond the garden strong light illuminates the backs of the houses – one in pink brick, the other rendered a pale ochre. Where we would expect to see the foreground in deep shade all the colours are lightened, giving a watercolour like effect. With the rickety fencing and the dapply leaves, the overall effect is very decorative and akin to one of David’s abstracts.
