‘Lockdown Garden’ features tranquil watercolour landscapes of the garden at Feeringbury Manor in Essex, created by the artist during the imposed lockdown.

Whilst shielding, Sonia Coode-Adams took the opportunity to return to painting after a hiatus of many years, and through this series of artworks she celebrates the garden and explores the soothing influence of nature as the landscape transitions from spring to summer.
