I planted a wildflower meadow to give me year round inspiration for my painting backdrops
It took a bit of work to get it established and looking back it now seems a long time since the cold spring day I first sowed this mixture of seeds and even longer since I gathered the seeds from the banks in my gallery car park! I also spent a lot of time preparing the ground. The seeds were sown in what is actually a very thin layer of soil covering 400 tons of solid chalk which had been dug out when my new studio was built.
These flowers have also been useful as studies for my backdrops. Scroll down to see my latest collection featuring hares in wildflowers. I am still working on one picture of two hares in a wildflower meadow. What do you think of it so far?
