May 2016 - Spring has finally arrived.

It is such a relief when spring finally arrives. In Devon it seems to appear overnight. The flowers  are at their best here in early spring, the bluebells are particularly abundant this year. Took a late evening walk up to Holwell Lawn. This was a totally sublime experience, surrounded by a purple - blue carpet with a sweet and delicate scent rising in a warm haze as the sun was fading.

Depicting bluebells is a challenge, most attempts seem so predictable and overdone. I made some monoprints back in the studio using imagery that has been developing from the Dartmoor walks, there is a hint of the flowers in them.
