‘The Italian Garden’

'The Italian Garden' Trentham Staffordshire Oil on canvas 24 x 36 ins

‘The Italian Garden’ Trentham Staffordshire 

This painting was commissioned by a client who lives in Wimbledon London. After discovering my work on my web site he got in touch and came up to see me at the gallery. The Italian Garden is situated on the Trentham Estate not to far from my gallery. His wife was from Trentham and after marrying held a reception in the Italian Garden on the Trentham Estate, and the painting was a surprise gift to celebrate their first wedding annivesrary.

I know the estate quite well as it is situated in my locality. The garden which is very formerly laid out reminded me very much of a Canaletto painting.
