The Artist’s Garden will feature up to 20 gardens that have inspired and been home to some of the greatest painters of history. These gardens not only supplied the inspiration for creative works but also illuminate the professional motivation and private life of the artists themselves – from Cezanne’s house in the south of France to Childe Hassam at Celia Thaxter’s garden off the coast off Maine. Flowers and gardens have often been the first choice for artists looking for a subject. A garden close to the artist’s studio is not only convenient for daily material and ideas, but also has the advantage of changing through the seasons and over time. Claude Monet’s Giverny was the catalyst for hundreds of great paintings (by Monet and other artists), each one different from the one before. Sometimes a whole village becomes the focus for a colony of artists as at Gerberoy in Picardy and Skagen on the northernmost tip of Denmark. This book is about the real homes and gardens that inspired these great artists – gardens that can still be visited today. The relationship between artist and garden is a complex one. A few artists, including Pierre Bonnard and his neighbour Monet were keen gardeners, as much in love with their plants as their work, while for others like Sorolla in Madrid, his courtyard home was both a sanctuary and a source of ideas.

Oil paint step by step floral art, crockery and other interesting subject matter from the garden. Can a typical garden provide inspiration for oil painting? Look hard and such a haven may yield more than one may first expect. Every garden is unique in character and has something to offer: lawns, greenhouses, pots, hedges, pets, flowers, patios, trellises, sheds, children, tools, vegetables, deckchairs, furniture, trees, swings, hanging-baskets, urns, bird tables, fishponds and sunlight. Taken from my art instruction book, Oil paintings from your Garden (and which some images appear in my other Oil Painting Medic books), 18 oil painting demonstrations featuring such aforementioned subject matter can be found within. This book is divided into clear sections according to theme: shadows, nonorganic, harvest and flora. A preparatory section near the back of this book offers advice on oil painting materials and how to prepare the art surface for painting. All demonstrations have been completed with a mere 10 oil colours, 6 brush types, artboards and a few additional household materials. This section can be previewed within my other art book, Landscape Painting in Oils – 20 Step by Step Guides, as it is located at the front. Each demonstration is keyed according to 4 levels of difficulty. If the painting does not go to plan, a troubleshooting section at the back of this book can be referred to along with a glossary. Each project within the demonstration section of this book is clearly set out. You will find: An image of the finished painting, (which can be used as a visual resource during the demo). An accompanying challenge. Between 7 and 9 step by step images of how the painting was completed. A list of the oil painting materials used for the project. Corresponding instructions to each image-in-progress on how the painting was done. Tips along the way. Various oil painting techniques are explored, including scumbling, glazing, impasto and palette knife application. The aim of this book is to encourage a new way of viewing the garden. With mobile objects, the shifting light and seasons, compositions in one’s back yard are waiting to be discovered. My other oil painting demonstration book, Landscape Paintings in Oil – 20 Step by Step Guides similarly provides step by step guides. Dimensions of large edition: 10x8in and 78 pages. Available in large, small edition and Kindle.

This extraordinarily beautiful book gathers together and examines for the first time a delightful collection of English gardens rendered by artists from 1540 to the early nineteenth century, many of which are unknown. Sir Roy Strong, widely recognised for his expertise in both art history and garden history, surveys garden pictures ranging from Elizabethan miniatures to eighteenth-century alfresco conversation pieces, from suites of paintings of a single garden to amateur watercolours. He inquires into the origin of the English garden picture genre, its development prior to the invention of photography, its greatest exponents, its reliability as historical evidence of actual gardens, and its place within the larger European tradition of picturing the garden.

A design and recipe resource with “all the tools to plan a productive garden before seeds ever meet the ground” (The Wall Street Journal). Based on seasonal cycles, each chapter of this indispensible book provides a new way to look at the planning stages of starting a garden—with themes and designs such as the Salad Lover’s Garden, the Heirloom Maze Garden, the Children’s Garden, and the Organic Rotation Garden. More than 100 recipes—including a full range of soups, salads, main courses, and desserts, as well as condiments and garnishes—are featured here, all using the food grown in each specific garden. “There’s no reason a vegetable garden must be an eyesore, banished to the corner by the garage. . . . The Complete Kitchen Garden . . . combines design advice, garden wisdom and recipes.” —Chicago Tribune

The English Flower Garden

To artists the modern garden is no more interesting than an oilcloth pattern , because instead of beautiful things we see emphasis given to mere pattern - work and flowers very often denuded of their grace of growth and form .

The broad sweep of environmental and ecological history has until now been written and understood in predominantly male terms. In Made From This Earth, Vera Norwood explores the relationship of women to the natural environment through the work of writers, illustrators, landscape and garden designers, ornithologists, botanists, biologists, and conservationists. Norwood begins by showing that the study and promotion of botany was an activity deemed appropriate for women in the early 1800s. After highlighting the work of nineteenth-century scientific illustrators and garden designers, she focuses on nature's advocates such as Rachel Carson and Dian Fossey who differed strongly with men on both women's "nature" and the value of the natural world. These women challenged the dominant, male-controlled ideologies, often framing their critique with reference to values arising from the female experience. Norwood concludes with an analysis of the utopian solutions posed by ecofeminists, the most recent group of women to contest men over the meaning and value of nature.
