Harry Rich often shares his art on his social media

"There's an EE Cummings poem that I love called 'this is the garden'", began Harry, adding: "And it's [about] the way that, in a garden, nothing is rigid."

He continued: "So I want to do a series that captures plants when they're grey and seasonality. Living here, it's all about the moment you blink and [the garden] has changed. So the idea is 'This is the garden, colours come and go'. For me it says so much without pinpointing something in particular."

The horticulturist, who lives in Brecon Beacon with his wife Sue and their one-year-old daughter Indigo, also explained that he'll be keeping busy outdoors as part of his inspiration.

"I'll be doing my garden over this winter so there'll be stuff I want to capture [for the project]. For me, it's that yearly movement through a garden. They can dramatically change. They're always changing and to be able to capture that on a canvas through oil paints or pastel or charcoal would be really fun."
