Bluebells in Kent – Spring is here!

The sun is shining ,the warmth of the Spring has suddenly brought on the Bluebells in the woods in Kent.

Some years the cow parsley masks the Bluebells but not this year, this is a great year for them.

Recently we visited a friend’s beautiful garden near Hawkhurst in Kent and by the pond in their garden was a lovely wood full of bluebells

i couldn’t resist having a go a painting them and here is the result. Bluebells have unique colours ranging from Blue to Violet which is quite a challenge, but no matter the accuracy the memory will remain of that beautiful scene.

Bluebells in Kent

As many of you know we also live to play golf and we are lucky that our golf course has woods with bluebells too.

So here is another painting from a year or two back with a scene on the course with bluebells in the woods.

Bluebells by the 12th green

If you do have a chance to get out into the countryside to see the bluebells then do try to go at this time, if not I hope you will enjoy my attempts to capture their beauty.

Happy travelling

  1. LOVE that first painting! I wish I’d seen the bluebells last year when I was in England, but it was too early in the month. Hoping I can return one day at the right time. It must really be beautiful!

  2. Hi Paige
    I am glad you like this one, sometimes,pretty rarely, a painting just works and so I too was pleased by this pretty quick watercolour
    The bluebells are lovely and very extensive this year and most. They don’t last long though but lare ovely whilst they do.
