Rhododendrons of Nivå

Rhododendrons of Nivå

Yesterday I went to a rhododendron garden in Nivå, a small Danish municipality north of Copenhagen. There my desire to paint plein air overcame my Southern California reluctance to call 50 Degrees F (10 C) acceptable painting weather.

There were hedges and mounds of blooming flowers and I was overwhelmed by the beauty and the possibilities. I walked a long time in the immense garden until I found an elevated spot where the blue of the Kattegat Sea helped to emphasize the robust colors of the garden.

    Love the negative shapes of sea and sky! Love the plethora of color and lines. Love the written description as much as your painting!!

    I love the many-blotchedness of the painting; it reminds me of the sort of forest that has moss and pebbles and this and that in it, instead of just one texture. (I realize it is a garden and not a forest, but I get that vibe from it, which reminds me of Denmark.)
