Local artist Lis Watkins visits our base camp for her daily sketch

Is there anything more magical than English woodland carpeted with bluebells?

Woodland basecamp

Just 10 minutes from central Croydon our base camp was strewn with purple from April to May and we were lucky enough to have local artist Lis Watkins come and visit our base camp and capture the woodland in this beautiful painting.

We admire Lis’s discipline, producing a water colour sketch every day which she posts on her blog lineandwash.
