Inspiration. Where does it come from?

I was on a quiet winding road through the hills.  No traffic.  Around every corner and hair pin bend there was a babbling brook, a bank of ferns, and trees coming into leaf.  How do you paint such a scene.  What colours will I use?

I have a limited palette of paints and that was deliberate.  I want to establish the mood of what I’m seeing in the simplest way possible.  It helped that there was a blue sky and plenty of sunshine coming through the dappled leaves and infecting the whole scene with light and shade.

So that’s what I painted.
The light and shade.
