Landscapes in green and yellow

Reproducing landscape ideas from one sketch ! First photocopying the original then using different colour gouache to create different moods

What I find interesting about myself ! If I think I am validated in my ideas I suddenly have more ideas and confidence for a while to experiment more freely.

After completing a days sketchbook workshop last year at Lund Studios in Easingwold Graham Sutherlands name was mentioned after I had produced some work. How could I possibly not have known who he was. This is the whole point of this MA Creative Practice. It is opening up a completely new world to me. I’m learning about artist after artist after artist. Somehow or another a lot of them have connections to each other. Once I start investigating and studying I unearth so many interesting facts and details.

Reading about how Graham Sutherland met Picasso on several occasions and even bought a property close by on the French Riviera. Like so many artists do! Me included but it’s only a caravan. But still it means I have a connection with the place and can visit in the holiday season.

Graham Sutherland has a lot to say about Picasso do I will be studying this in much more detail.

After learning more about Graham Sutherland I am practicing some of my own landscapes with a freedom I didn’t have before seeing his work. They are slightly more surrealist and leave me fighting trying to recognise the original.

I’ve always wanted to be an artist for some reason. What ever that means. Perhaps it means being paid to create art or creating art for yourself? I think it would make me happier to paint every day, to loose myself in the process of painting, drawing, making ! Only of course when I am enjoying it and it’s going well! 😇 I like beautiful things around me. I like colour, pattern and texture. I like history, I like to know what has happened in people’s lives, how they have coped with life and what they have done.
