This picture was painted last year and never finished. It was done ‘plein air’. I felt it needed something to inspire and lift it, so I added a few things that weren’t in the picture. For a start it was painted in the summer but I decided a bluebell would might look right. The tree was originally bare and mostly had dead branches so I added leaves to liven it up. The rocks in the foreground were just small stones which I turned into large rocks.
