I joined in with my friend Lesley Lord’s workshop. She was ‘painting a bluebell wood’ with her class but I’d done a few of those previously, so asked if she’d mind if I did my own version and made it snowdrops in a wooded area. Alright, I must admit, that I was probably being a bit difficult. Anyway, my come uppance arrived when it came to painting the floor covering of bluebells. As Lesley gave instructions on how to fill the surface with different hues of blue, I was left with an inordinate amount of ‘white’ paper on which to paint a carpet of ‘white’ snowdrops!!! So… well it might have been a disaster on any other day… but fortunately that day I managed to work my way around it. I was pleased with the result and Lesley was impressed too.
