Early in 2011, I  painted some preliminary studies which have a huge emotional stamp  for many people, especially when we talk about Princess Diana. My daughter took me to Althorp Estate in Northamptonshire, where I enjoyed a great day painting in the gardens.

I do paint my sketches very quickly, and in doing so, I know I will capture some of the feelings which are truly palpable in the air and landscapes. Also, I can step away from painting the minutiae, which become an obstacle for me in getting to the ultimate concentration of feelings.

The gardens will inspire artists of any genre to start working , they do offer endless opportunities to create in atmospheric location. The peacefulness of the day certainly added to the experience.

Walking around this small arboretum near to the main house just invites the artist’s eye to look for patterns and colours to make some great sketches.

The title for my post came from the quotations of Braque and Picasso bout how emotions act on their work.

 ….It (Nature) suggests emotion, and I translate that emotion into art. ” “Emotion should not be rendered by an excited trembling; it can neither be added on nor be imitated. It is the seed, the work is the flower. ”- Georges Braque.

“Colours, … follow the changes of the emotions.”-Pablo Picasso.
