I wanted to show some light and brightness in the dismal worrying times we were all enduring. Well, what about spring and the flowers it produces to lift our spirits and feel the sun will shine again? The Yorkshire Wolds give me the inspiration and subject matter to paint to my heart’s content without having to travel too far. They’re a short car ride away and I like to get out and look over the Vale; on a clear day, you can see right across to the Pennines.

‘I first started painting this in February, shortly before lockdown, but it somehow wasn’t quite right. So I left it for a bit and then, one day in May, I realised what it needed was some flowers to brighten it - foxgloves, to be precise.

‘It’s not a specific view, more a feeling of how the Vale strikes me. It’s why I approached it from an abstract point of view. The paint is acrylic but I’m keen on texture, too. I’ll use anything that comes to hand: palette knife, rags, even my hands. I’m pleased with the end result and so is my husband. He says he’s very happy to have it hanging in the house and so he should be: he’s now living with an award-winning artist!

There’s a wonderful sense of movement as though a warm breeze is tickling the flowers

This is a good illustration about avoiding the dangers of working from photographs
