The Gardens Series: Giverny

Monet's Gardeners

{short description of image}


This is an important engraving for me. I was impressed by

the hard work that the gardeners put into the recreation

of Monet's garden at Giverny. Their labours are generally

ignored and I started to include them in sketches, thinking

that I could celebrate their work with an engraving.

The thinking lasted four years, and involved two visits

to the garden. After lots of sketches, I arrived at a

composition that I liked and started the actual process

of engraving the block, which took about two weeks.
