Betty Pennell

Our cottage overlooking the River Wye in Herefordshire has several richly planted terraces with a mature Woodland garden and a pond, so it seems natural that I should find landscape in Britain and my passion for trees and gardening a constant source of inspiration

Although I do make preliminary studies using a combination of photographs and sketches, memory has a greater role in the final work.  I sometimes find a perfect setting and a sense of place for my narrative paintings during visits to country houses throughout Britain, with their historic buildings and magnificent gardens in which I can imagine figures in mysterious situations.
