Primrose Panel

"The primroses were over."

So begins the best known book about Watership Down. Possibly the only book about it.

And this is the first floral panel of the Kingsclere School Mural. The floral panels are beneath the windows and my idea was to use wild flowers to add bright colours: yellow, blue, red and white. Yellow was originally gong to be buttercups, but when I thought of primroses and realised that they were part of the novel, I changed my mind.

Acrylic on school, with able assistance from two pupils.
