The fresh green pastures,
Of the Charlton valley,
Where the ancient pathway lies,
Fluffy white dandelion clocks appear,
After the vivid yellow flowers,
A scattering of wild spring flowers,
In the beautiful month of May.
Words and my thoughts after exploring the landscape,meadows,woodland along the Wessex Ridgeway just over the border of North Dorset into Wiltshire.
The colours are so inspiring,so fresh,vivid but delicate.The light was perfect the other day and it lit up the shades of different wild flowers and grasses in the late springsummer meadow.
I used a wet in wet technique in Holbein Watercolour paints,using a large pointed sable haired brush and a flat hogs hair varnish brush .I dashed the paint on spontaneously,with excitement.I was like a child and then composed as an adult again for the gradual blending of weaving in many colours that I mixed, using a four colour technique.
