A Summer walk along the riverbank where wildflowers grow and dragonflies dart and swoop among the tall spikes of Purple-loosestrife .
The beautiful sweet scent of Meadowsweet fills the air as it is carried on the warm breeze.
This painting was inspired by a recent countryside walk near my home in East Sussex. I wanted to capture the wonderful colours, beauty and wildness of the riverside .
The dragonflies are highlighted with blue metallic paint that catches the light just as they do in the Summer sun.
