Rebecca Lockyear writes on behalf of Sidmouth Society of Artists who have been painting the spectacular daffodil floral displays around the Sid Valley.

“Sidmouth Daffodil Society invited Sidmouth Society of Artists to create a host of daffodil paintings to help them celebrate this magnificent season and add to their online event.

“This time of the year is so full of colour thanks to the gorgeous displays of daffodils throughout the town. It is little wonder that we all enjoy painting them so much.
“We are looking forward to emerging creatively after lockdown, blossoming with ideas of how to engage the community in art activities and we would love to encourage new members to join us.
