Artist Jacob....

The garden of gravetye is a developed piece of work that is part of a continued series of flower paintings that I have been working on over the last two or so years. This painting has flowers that are much bolder and more refined, the endless gentle green stems were built up on thinned oil paint over a duration of several months. The placement of flowers reflects the hilled horizon of which the gravetye views.

Gravetye is a special place that connects architecture new and old, nature and spectacular food into a balanced experience. Plants and even some flowers from the gardens are used to create memorable dishes that are served in a magnificent manner.
