Drawing at Dixter

Summer has provided an opportunity for some drawing days at Great Dixter, the East Sussex garden made famous by Christopher Lloyd and which is now under the guidance of Fergus Garrett.

The workshops were run by Rosie MacCurrach, who has been artist in residence at Dixter for the last year or more, seeing it through all the seasons. Some of her delicate and lyrical drawings can be seen on her site.

Renowned for its topiary, the garden has a unique character – moving from space to space atmosphere and mood change with the planting. I drew two different views of the topiary garden on two different days in August.
