I have always had a fascination with Japan & the stunning cherry blossom trees. I researched the dates for cherry blossom & we booked to go. It is such an amazing place & we were only going for 2 weeks so I took a risk as the cherry blossom season is dependant on the weather. Fortunately I had chosen well & within a couple of days all the blossom was out. They are such a beautiful tree & there are about 600 varieties. I must have taken about 1000 or more photographs (more) as the days varied from being brilliant sunshine then the next day drizzle. Even the overcast days were stunning & I truly need to paint some more blossom. I love this painting as I have chosen just a couple of the main flowers, a couple of buds & part of the branch. The sky was brilliant blue & the sun was streaming over the flowers; brilliant subject matter. You can see all the shadows from the sunlight & that’s what I really wanted to capture. The little buds were a lovely way of introducing the luscious mushroom pink tones with the subtle green & browns. A perfect combination & a trip I will never forget. This exquisite piece will look fabulous in any home, office…any environment.
