Bluebells in Burton Bushes - a quick sketch.

Slightly abstract plein air, done very quickly , 12 x 10 oil on canvas board, pochade box sketch.
Wanted to try and capture the essence and fleeting moment of this wonderful sight, bluebells in profusion with narrow pathways criss crossing through them. People passed either walking their dogs or indeed, just to see the annual sight of thousands of bluebells carpeting this side of the ancient wood. I will return very soon to produce a larger canvas with more detail. For now this will do - one of two the second to be posted soon.
Happy painting.
