Nature Inspired


As the ferns are uncurling, this is the time of year which I love the most. Everything awakening, a festival of colour in every direction you walk. I’ve been making the most of the sunshine, sketching in the landscape.

Sketching Whimble and the Hanging Valley near Kinnerton.

Whilst on my walk I discovered these beautiful Early Purple Orchids, amongst Bluebells, Primroses and a few Cowslips. They were creating their own colour palette and amazing scent in the air. It was a treat for your senses, as the birds called around me.
