Bluebells in Burton Bushes late May

Plein air 12 x 10" oil on board.
I wanted to try and paint an impression of bluebells from inside the wood looking out towards the perimeter path. Even though just 20 metres away we were seldom disturbed by passing walkers. A chance meeting with an ex student from my early days of teaching was rather pleasing as he was with his wife and daughter, and we briefly chatted about our dogs and past times. Another man with an venerable cross collie - nearly, I think, 20 years old was particularly memorable. Two walks a day for the last 19 years - both dog and owner looked better for it. The bluebells are just beginning to show signs dying back though still worth visiting for a week or so yet.
Happy painting
