Blossoms in the Meadows, after Seurat

Blossoms in the Meadows, after Seurat

Mixed media and pastels on archival paper


When the cherry blossoms bloom, Mr.J always makes a trip to Jawbone Walk in the Meadows, one of Edinburgh’s most beautiful features in spring. This sprawling recreational park with its diverging walkways would be an ideal setting for a painting by Seurat, who captured the vivid comings and goings of Parisian modern life.


This pastel drawing interprets his pointillism and the shimmering light effects he created. Natural daylight diffuses throughout the work, enriching spring’s vivid colours. Several characters from Seurat’s paintings are recreated in the artwork, adding historical context and giving new life to Seurat through a revived artistic legacy.
