Apple Blossom & Shadows I, Hardwick Hall


Blossom series created during my Blossom arts project celebrating the beauty & delicacy of spring blossom created in the fruit orchards at Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire. I placed blank canvases under the trees on a sunny day. I was surprised & interested by the shadows cast upon the white surface & hastily traced & painted them finishing the painting in the studio.
