Mothers Day En Plein Air Sketching Chudleigh 2023
On Mothers day this year I was lucky to have a lovely day.
In the morning my children made me breakfast in bed, in the afternoon my husband and children had other things they wanted to do so I got to go out sketching!
Lovely sunny day..I decided to head for some Chudleigh Woodland by the River Teign.
Here there is small variety of daffodils growing along the banks of the river.
I was fascinated by the reflections on the water, the shadows cast by the trees on the footpaths and the daffodils were beautiful.
As an experiment I decided to paint with the cyanotype on various types of paper and to add other elements into the mix.
I was there for four hours. During my stay people with dogs walked past and then a young man on an off road motorbike arrived and we chatted about the beauty of this area and the hidden trails to come along to find the best spots.
Now I know there is a rope swing here over the water I will bring my children back in the summer to play!
