Back to Hillhouse Wood this morning! If you’ve been following my story for a while you will remember this was the wood I visited every month in 2016 for my painting project ‘Twelve Months in an Essex Wood’.

Sally Patrick, at the Haylett’s Gallery, has asked for eight paintings for their summer show  – including a couple of bluebell woods. So off I went this morning to West Bergholt. The woods did not disappoint.

I sat on a couple of benches and did some drawing. Lots of ideas for paintings.

And I heard a nightingale – just one, but I think it’s still quite early for them. And I saw a great spotted woodpecker, really clearly, working its way rather ponderously round and round an oak tree. What a lovely morning! Hope your morning was good, too – and it’s Friday again tomorrow! Yay! 🙂
