Cherry Blossoms captured by the Yorkshire Post

Have you seen me paint the Cherry Blossoms outside on Harrogate’s Stray? I usually paint the glorious Cherry Blossoms on Harrogate Stray annually.

Taking a large canvas outside I set up underneath the stunning blossom archway on this public parkland. I just use just twigs to paint with dipping the ends into acrylic paint to create the trees and then dipping into pinks and whites to individually create each blossom.

The Stray is always filled with people enjoying walking under these archways of pink blossoms, taking photos, having family picnics, dog walking and generally enjoying themselves.

Many people stop to see what I am doing and ask questions which I am delighted to answer, they are usually intrigued by the colours I use and the methods with which I paint with.

Its all about being in the right place at the right time. This year Simon Hulme, of the Yorkshire Post photographed me painting one of my canvases. Here is the resulting photograph which was published on the front cover of the newspaper a few days later. A few years previously he had photographed me in the Stray with my sheepdog Poppy.

Hope you like these new paintings. All available on canvas as Limited Edition Giclee Prints too here. Do keep an eye on my website for more.

A friend of mine, Mandy, sent me a text out of the blue saying, ‘if I was thinking of coming to London to see the Queen lying in State, I was welcome to stay with her’.
