Spring is here and the bluebells are out in England, the almond blossom has finished in Spain but the wild flowers are everywhere in abundance.
I have been out and about in both countries with the sketch pad and camera and I have captured useful reference material. I always think that as well as the sign that winter has past and there are longer, lighter evenings to come, spring flowers give the painter the opportunity to add colour to a canvas.
This a painting of bluebells of an area that I used to visit a lot when I lived in Cornwall, England. It is a stream that feeds into the River Fowey and the woods are part of Lanhydrock House near Bodmin in Cornwall.
I will post new work on the news page when I can as well as my Facebook. You can see that by clicking on the Facebook link.
I now have the dates for the exhibitions in Japan in May and June finalized and I am working on the last canvas at the moment. As always, it will be interesting to get a public reaction to the weeks spent concentrating at the easel.
