Stepping into Spring
It was a cool dull day but that didn't stop us from venturing out for a walk and a little painting session. Looking for somewhere local to paint we stepped into the woods near Bramham. The location was difficult to find on a map but we found it to be Milner Beck pond near Wothersome.
It was a little bit windy to be hanging around in the woods with the trees blowing and squeaking above my head but that didn't deter me - I just painted faster! It was good to get messy with acrylics for a change, painting with my fingers and a palette knife, then heading home to finish my picture with pastels. I decided to brighten my finished painting a little and add the snowdrops from further along the path.
