This September I finally got to Newlyn School of Art for Anita Reynolds’ excellent short Abstract Landscape course. It was refreshing to be at a coastline with such different geology, to leave old mark making habits at home and spend a bit of time in a learner mindset being overwhelmed by a new landscape before the big shapes revealed themselves.

I intend to continue with some of the approaches to making images and the processes Anita encouraged us to try, and to build a new body of work over the next few months in which I might use a few core images to explore different processes and colour palettes. A brilliant experience, well worth the journey!
