In May and June the wood is full of colour, with first the bluebells and gorse and then the rhododendrons as well as many other wild flowers. The path tunnels its way through the rhododendrons and the oak trees look brilliant with the sun shining through them. There are views out of the wood towards Derwent Valley.
I did several paintings on location in my attempt to capture the intense colours of the sunlight on the rhododendrons and the deep colours in the shade.
