I’ve had an idea for a while, (rekindled by Leslie) that I might try painting the same scene in different seasons. Amber has also given me confidence, pointing out other people’s paintings can remind us of episodes from our own past. With all this in mind, I decided to paint the Bluebell wood in Teesdale in autumn, and without the Bluebells. I have a sketch from the summer showing the Bluebells in the same wood which I’ll post tomorrow. Come winter, I’ll paint another. I’m so excited about this mini project.
