My Garden Sketchbook 2020 – Part One

During the spring and summer of this year I have been working on a garden sketchbook, trying to show our garden through these two seasons using a variety of media from photography to pencil crayon sketching. A few weeks back I had to send my completed sketchbook over to Brooklyn, USA. My sketchbook is part of a worldwide project created by Brooklyn Art Library. My book will be one of 22 000 from around the world and has now with all the others been digitalised for all to see. (

Here are my sketches for you to have a look. My sketchbook was all about two seasons in our garden, spring and summer. I included pencil sketches, watercolours, pencil crayon work, photo montages and collages and others. I hope you enjoy seeing this first selection of them.

In part two I will share more of my sketches from my Sketchbook.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.
