Description

This work depicts a tangled profusion of flowering branches in full sunlight as if viewed from below against a field of blue sky. Hill was undoubtedly working in accordance with Ruskin's observation that the most beautiful position in which flowers could be seen was the most natural one—flowering plants against grass or moss, and fruit-tree blossoms against the sky.

Descriptive medium: Watercolor over graphite on wove paper
