Barnsdale Wood

Oil on Board, 6x8 inches

So many of the local woodlands in Rutland are carpeted with English Bluebells which grow in such profusion at this time of year. One can never tire of seeing such splendour, and although I've painted Bluebell woods countless times in the last 30 years, I never tire of painting them either.

The dappled sunlight produced lovely dancing, soft shadows and jewels of light, and capturing these is a joy, with all the subtleties of greens and browns and purples, mmmm.......


  1. Peter never tires of painting the bluebells, and I never tire of looking at his paintings of them!

    1. Thank you anonymous - you're very kind!
