The Parade Gardens, Bath

The English Summer. Optimism on a Stormy Day. This ink painting depicts the Parade Gardens, Bath, at the height of a British summer. The weather has been very hot here, so it provided a good opportunity to take some photos of packed parks. I decided to give this picture a twist with the dark sky and red triffid like plant shaking in the foreground. The loose fast brush strokes give the impression of something brewing.
