I saw an image, a photo of some cherry blossom, on Redbubble ( you'll have to have a look!) taken by Meg Hart and I was struck by its simplicity and beauty and the tonal contrast within it. On this site you can leave comments and encouragement to the artists and I duly admired Meg's image and congratulated her. I also asked permission to paint from the image as I sort of knew that I would love doing it. And here it is....I went straight off to paint it even though I should have been getting ready for tomorrow's workshop. Finished it off this morning....I'm pleased with it. I shall be looking out for cherry blossom next Spring as I love that combination of colours...the pinks and pale blues and purples and the dark brown of the bare twigs.
