MA, first steps

MA, first steps

This summer, I began to explore ink through the subject of trees. I’ve found that my passion for landscape art has led me to the ukiyo-e , Alexander Cozens, Hokusai and Ruskin, who have greatly influenced me over the past few months. In my previous post ” Shade and Light,  ” I presented some of my summer […]

Shade and light summer sketches

Whilst working on my graduate exhibition I began to investigate light and shade more so than I ever had before.

I began to learn more about myself and pushed through anxieties to make last year the best it year could have been. I feel as though I can say that 2018 was one of the best years […]

My tutor and I discussed how I wanted to explore landscapes and came to the conclusion that the traditional horizontal landscape (the horizon line 2/3 down the painting) was becoming, not tiresome but had grown commonplace for me.
