At the beginning of last year I had a request for a painting of bluebells- possibly in and oval format.The bluebells weren't out at the time and I needed a few references and a really good look at the sort of areas where they grow. Our trip up to Ulverston and the Lake District for Printfest at the beginning of May gave me just the opportunity I needed.
The woods were filled with a soft blue haze, dappled spring sunlight and the perfect opportunity for information gathering. This is the resulting painting and there are several others on the easel awaiting completion- I haven't painted an oval version yet but perhaps the circular one will do...
