A5 hardbound notebook - Portuguese Gardens


by David Lyon

A beautiful hardbound notebook featuring "Portuguese Garden: Yellow", an original painting using acrylic on hardboard by David Lyon from his "Portuguese Gardens" series.

"The surroundings gardens of a hotel provided the inspiration for a playful series of images using the seemingly random layout of trees and shrubs. The lack of formality lead to some unusual juxtapositions of shape and colour. Initially a series of collages, I really enjoyed introducing a looser style when applying the paint for the foliage and flowers which is contrasted with the almost flat background.

"The more time I spent amongst the gardens the more I wanted to put down the shapes and colours I was seeing. The bright Mediterranean sunlight gave the foliage sharp edges and beautifully contrasting colours against a brilliant blue sky”.

His full series can be seen here.
