Numbered Edition

Whilst March is dominated by glorious displays of Wordsworth’s daffodils, May is the month when the Lake District celebrates the humble bluebell, Hyacinthoides non-scripta. When Paul and his wife Julie, came back from a walk in Ambleside, having enjoyed the wondrous spectacle of carpets of bluebells, they purchased a painting featuring a bluebell wood for their wedding anniversary gift to each other. It may be a trick of the mind but when you look at yard after yard of bluebells it seems that everything begins to morph into shades of blue.

To capture this experience, Paul cleverly champions the Moorcroft blue engobe technique, where a blue clay is used before decoration commences. The Colour Blue sees clouds of ancient woodland erupt into shades of blue with bluebells delicately dotted as far as the eye can see. Draped under the rim of the vase, swathes of bluebells tower over the trees as if the trees are a mere reflection of an endless pool of blue shadows.
