Flatford: Early Spring

By Sally Pudney on 7th April 2018

So, here is the third painting of my 2018 painting project, Four Seasons on the Stour.

Flatford: Early Spring

This huge old pollard willow is on the bank of the river just as the path goes off across the fields from Flatford to Dedham. How narrow the river is here compared to Cattawade, my last painting location!

I’m going to do a second Flatford painting, but I’m also looking forward to making my next visit to the river, which will be at Dedham. I’ve already painted several views of the Stour at Dedham, so the challenge will be to find a completely different view. Which I don’t think will be very difficult!

Festival news: I have two more artist visits coming up this next week, so more news on them in due course. There are links to all the artist’s websites on our Festival site, so you can always get a little preview. Go to www.allsaintsartsfestival.org.uk

It’s been a beautiful Spring day here, warm sunshine, all the birds singing, lots of primroses, daffodils, magnolia and camellias opening in my garden. AND for the first time this year – painting with the studio door open! Hope you’ve had a good day wherever you are, too. 🙂
