The Mobile Art and Photography of Nettie Edwards

Looking Closer

Today was crisp, clear and sunny, so I spent time exploring Arnold’s garden with my Olliclip macro lens. Here’s something I found.

Snowdrop Time At Painswick

IMG_2585-0
Each year, during Late January and February, hundreds of people visit Painswick to enjoy the magnificent swathes of Snowdrops for which the Rococo Garden is famous. I began my residency here last April, so I’ve had to wait for nine months before I could begin to explore the potential of Snowdrop leaf Anthotypes. Today I began my experiments and am delighted to write that my colour swatches show great promise.

When crushed, the leaves emit a delightfully fresh scent that reminds me of pea pods. As I’d collected them
In the rain, I didn’t add water for these first samples. The dye is a pretty Spring green of good opacity. One coat may well be enough.

Later this week, I’ll be back in the garden to coat some papers with delicious Snowdrop dye, but I must be patient for a few months more because it will be late March before conditions are right to begin my first exposures.

A couple of weeks ago, I was paid a visit by Garden designer and writer Non Morris. She has written a beautiful blog post about her Winter trip to Gloucestershire. It can be found here.
