Nice one Sally!

Gorgeous hawthorn, Sally! Love the subtle cool/warm blues, pinks, shading!

Hi Sally haven't been on the site in a while but I have to say this is a fabulous painting. The quality of the light is magical and the colour of the blossoms so realistic I can almost smell their perfume. Lovely! Are you coming to AITO?

You captured that Hawthorn beautifully Sally

Thanks Sally, we had a discussion recently about Winton v artists quality paints.  I think the proper name for that herb is Sorrell but the garden centre one does not taste as good as its wild version found in our fields.

" It is no wonder we were never sick."  Norah - its a wonder you all survived!    I would love to be able to say I knew what I was doing with the colours Norah,  I fiddled around a bit and probably used orange-yellow (Winton) in the white and hence the blue-purple complementary in the shadow.

Sally, beautiful. Is there a touch of blue in the shadows of the hawthorn, beautifully and fresh.  Its a tree I particularly love as well, and you are correct Sally, it was a great year for them.

Sally I think you should put Sean's words in your frame of this painting, did you use some warm yellow to get that subtle glow in the whitethorn as it glows off the screen or maybe it is your use of greys that show it off.  We used to eat the leaves from the Hawthorn too Sean and we used to call it Devil's bread but I cannot remember why, we also used to love eating the little peas along the road - cat's fetches or some such thing was what we called them and then there was that sour herb in the fields we called that sarny.  It is no wonder we were never sick.
