Spring is here in the UK and the early stages of buds are all over the trees.
This is my favourite time of the year! I love sensing the new life on it’s way.
In 2006 I spent a whole year documenting one season of the little apple tree in my garden, focusing on blossom. I produced the 20 paintings that won me an RHS gold medal.
A little obsessive?! Definitely! But I really enjoyed painting them. You can see those paintings on my website here.
If you also find blossom hugely uplifting, I thought you might enjoy this little video I’ve made about the process of painting an apple blossom:
If you’re a member of my online school then the full step-by-step tutorial of this apple blossom is available there.
Please let me know in the comments below if you’ve been inspired by spring and have been painting anything seasonal.
