This image took me back to my childhood in Huddersfield, England, where there was (is?) a Bluebell wood, which was just gorgeous in the Spring, so I just HAD to paint it. Done in Oil Pastels, mostly "Neopastel", on 9 X 6 "Mi-Teintes" Grey/Blue pastel paper. Had a LOT of fun with this one for just under two hours. Then photo' shows rather too much of the paper texture,but I am still pleased with the result! http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/17-May-2015/1962159-BLUBELL_WOOD.jpg

This is very pretty! And how nice that's it's a piece of childhood nostalgia for you as well
Nice capture of light coming through the trees and the lovely bluebells on the bottom.
