Orchard Walk

Gathering ideas for paintings from an Orchard walk

|I really enjoy getting out into the landscape to gather ideas. Yesterday, the weather was wonderfully sunny in the morning so I decided to take a walk with my teenage son in the orchard. We are fortunate to have a local orchard at the back of our house which allows us to walk in the beautiful Kent countryside. We managed to walk all the way to the lake and take some photographs of the gorgeous landscape.

There were so many amazing views, across the fields, through the woods, the skies and the cloud formations were spectacular! The weather was perfect with superb light. I will be using these during the week to develop some drawings and sketches.

I love walking and taking in the landscape. When I return to the studio I feel so inspired to get painting. What inspires you to paint?
