This is a bit of a departure for me. I don't normally paint abstracts but I have been thinking about abstracts a lot just lately. This one actually started out as a way of using left over paint - but then the painting took over, and needless to say, I had even more paint left over at the end.

I like the effect of these colours together and for me - especially with the square format - it works. Sometimes it reminds me of a cityscape, and at other times of a waterscape and reflections.

Bluebell Wood in Dappled Light Oil Painting

Bluebell Wood in dappled light, Rufford Park
Oil painting by Marion Hedger
30x40x3.5cm boxed canvas with sides painted black
Can be framed or hung as is.
Every summer in May the old woods of England are awash with blue. These tiny bluebells give such a beautiful colour to the woodland floor - sometimes blue, sometimes purple, sometimes pink, depending upon how the light shines on them.
It is truly a wonderful sight. The dappled light of the woods in early summer really lifts the heart.
