A pleasant spring day..

It was quite pleasant out today, so much so I ventured into the walled garden in Marlay Park to start a plien-air painting,

I only really got the foundation washes laid in though as the paint obviously was going to be very slow drying. The photo is both of the work and the view I was painting. I will upload more detailed views later in the week, assuming I get the weather to continue with the painting, both of the garden and of the work....the painting is on an 18 inch by 14 inch canvas incidently.
I'm looking forward to spending a few hours in the walled garden over the summer..I will try to capture some of it's recreated borders and Kitchen gardens throughout the year.
