Blossom Fizzing

Another blossom painting emerges,bees buzzing all around me.

Another blossom painting emerges,bees buzzing all around me.

The Chaddesden pop up Blossom Studio was a success on Sunday 19th,some fabulous paintings,clay and blossom sculptures created.I was also delighted it was featured on BBC East Midlands today.
At Hardwick Hall the apple blossoms have started to fizz and I have had several days with sunshine and blue skies under the blossoms.It has been blossom heaven! Another three paintings have emerged including one using a new technique.I was fascinated how the shadows from the apple trees created patterns on my blank white canvases,so I started to photograph them every half hour which recorded the changes.I then traced around the shadow with some charcoal and overpainted the blossoms filling in the shadows too,I love the effect and want to develop this further.I am using the oil paint quite thick mixed with a little linseed oil to go on smoothly.
The bees have been incredibly busy and a squirrel joined me one morning and hid behind my large canvas.I have met some very interesting people,there have been many visitors over the Bank Holiday Weekend.I am delighted how many people have created their own orchard postcard picture,adults and children, a couple of pictures have even been signed by Picasso and Van Gogh!
