I feel almost guilty saying it, given the terrible flooding and storm damage many in England and Southern Scotland are experiencing, but we in the north-east are enjoying an extremely mild and quite dry period. So much so that Nature is bursting back into life all around. I just love this time of year - it's by far my favourite season! I just had to get out there and paint the beautiful feeling of new life and colour, and I had planned to paint this bridge for some time. It is beautiful, and may well feature in future paintings, although not from this angle - when I sell a painting I like to ensure that the new owner will not find another similar one going on sale later. I don't usually replicate paintings for that reason. This is another area of thick tree growth which I have thinned out to display the bridge. The sky is clear and blue but subtly coloured with pink to add brilliance. The painting is all about the life, the new colour, the buds, the sheer beauty of this wonderful season. I hope you like it!
