As the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show closes, its fans have another chance to indulge in a display of floral beauty.

Just a few minutes’ walk from the palace, the Fountain Gallery is hosting an exhibition of work by artists Tessa Pearson and Ingrid Saag.

Although they use different media, both produce vibrant and colourful work inspired by their love of gardens.

Ms Pearson said: "There’s a wonderful garden called the Sussex Prairie Garden - they are living paintings these places, with great swathes of colour and texture.

"I went down there to do some drawings and it triggered off this immense excitement in me," Tessa says when describing one source of inspiration.

For Ms Saag, a major inspiration is the Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park.
