Hello again from me!!

This week I visited the Garden Museum in London to see the exhibition of Humphey Repton’s Red books.

The museum was closed for two years while a refurbishment took place. The new shop has a good

selection of books. The new cafe does great food.

The exhibition is very interesting.

I have started water colour painting.

Repton designed a good selection of gardens round the country.

His red book are quite famous.

I did not know that in those times it was usual to paint a drawing of the garden.

It was then the custom to make an overlay of the new design.

In these days when CAD

is often used ,it is a good idea to look again at the maters of design .

We can always improve our knowledge of design and looking at the old masters is one way of doing this.
