A Cezanne Style Painting of the Garden behind 

Wentworth Garden Centre near Rotherham in South 



A man looks out across the ornamental pond which 

has overhanging Japanese Maples. The small arch shapes 

behind him are old duck houses, and the bear used to be

kept in a stone enclosure towards the back of the Garden.


Painting Technique:

The Image was first drawn with a fine brush and red Acrylic 

Paint. The Drawing was allowed to show  through to add a 

vibrant key note to the Painting. The composition is based 

on circular and triangular shapes similar to those used by 

Cezanne. Some of the colour and cross-hatching brush-work 

is also similar in style to Cezanne's Post Impressionist work.


The Bear Garden, Wentworth Painting was awarded 

Commended by the judges at the South Yorkshire Open 

Art Exhibition at the Cooper Gallery, Barnsley.
