The Bouchard Gardens - a new pastel


I finished my 2nd pastel. It's a Spring time view of the beautiful Bouchard Gardens on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The day was a little misty but it was warm and there was a gentle breeze. The garden itself started life as a gravel pit. The owner's wife thought it was an eye-sore and was determined to do something about it. She took over with an army of gardeners and the result of her vision is like walking into a fairy tale.
