Research and Gathering
Throughout this year and next I will be documenting the grounds and gardens of Scampston Hall using nature mono print.The finished pieces will be exhibited there later next year. With beautiful Capability Brown designed grounds and stunning gardens by Piet Oudolf this place really is a treasure of contrasts, calm and colour. Though nearly midsummer it was more overcast today but this made it perfect for picking and pressing the plants before they wilted. Having been given permission to pick and collect whatever I want I had the most blissful time! Alongside gathering plants to print from I take many photos to record colour and some of the plants that are just too tricky to print from!
