Bluebell Wood

This scene brings back happy memories of a walk I went on last May with my wife, Maggie. It was a lovely quiet, sunny day and the walk finished at a pub that served great food.

The painting was supposed to be a lot looser than my previous attempts and started off that way - but then I couldn't resist adding in the smaller details. Still it's a step in the right direction. I'm going to have to get somebody to hide my smaller brushes, next time!


  1. Matthew, This painting is rich in color. I like the looser brushwork in this one.

  2. Very nice painting, nice brushwork. Also, like your two for one apples.
