We three chose a woodland path – lots of fir and deciduous trees, rocks, moss, leaves, pretty ground cover, branchy things, clean air, and a fresh spring rain to make everything brighter and drippy.
What a “walk”! So much banter, oohing and aaaahing – “oh – come look at this” we share excitedly …. Textures, colours, shapes – brilliant.
We let ourselves be amazed and transformed by all this beauty and the wonder of it all. Inspiring, exciting, humbling. An hour and only 50 metres later we have achieved some sort of natural high – our minds bubbling over with fresh painting ideas.
