Artist's description:

This studio painting was inspired by the cherry blossom trees in flower in Sheffield.
As with all my studio pieces, the painting belies the process involved in achieving its finished state. With no pre-drawing, it begin with very free strokes of translucent paint to resolve the composition. Increasing layers were applied and built up with a small brush to obtain both opacity and the tight meeting of colours. The palette is less extensive than the eye registers because colours and the size of their fields interact with neighbouring colours differently depending on that colour and its size. These effects are further intensified by the very flat application of paint, such that no brush strokes are visible on the canvas. The painting moves between representation and abstraction as one's attention is drawn in turn by the subject evoked and by the interaction of the colours themselves.
