I’ve started an abstract landscape course with stivespainting. Our tutor houghliz has given us 7 exercises to complete and these are some of my initial charcoal investigations. The idea being that each drawing informs the next by thoroughly investigating the subject. Im already noticing which parts of this landscape interest me the most. It’s proving to be quite a challenge but I can feel that it’s moving me in the right direction. Nothing beats careful observation, repetition and just being present in the space. I wonder where this journey will take me?...
Oval with Stone. Monoprints with drawing on paper.
New works on paper marrying printmaking with paint and drawing marks. This piece will be posted in my Etsy shop from tomorrow. I am taking part in hertsvisualarts, but only online this year.

This morning I did my first ever live online life class. It was Matisse Inspired and we used only sticks and ink. Was so much fun and just whizzed by. May look at the recording of it and do some colour paintings. So many stripes. Thanks to alicemumford for the class at stivespainting

I hope to resume drawing at the Barbara Hepworth Museum eventually, but in the meantime I’m posting a few pre lockdown images.
I was trying to evoke the feeling of mystery and power I experienced when observing this piece ‘Conversation with Magic Stones’ and as the light faded over the sea at dusk it was indeed magical.
Another brilliant session online with Liz Hough on her abstract landscape course Sense of Place. Now I have a list of tasks to complete over the next month. First job cutting out some stencils of my motifs from the Beacon. Chose a thistle, some rocks, a clump of trees and some posts with barbed wire, in the end. I’ll be abstracting this motif as well as using them to make collage papers.
I’ve just taken part in a fabulous virtual life drawing class stivespainting Can’t wait for next weeks class! I’ve blogged about it if you’d like to hear a bit more about it #schoolofpainting PS This isn’t an ad or owt like that....
This crop from Swaledale has gone coastal 🧐🙄. Might end up chopping it up! I’ve been looking at work in different formats and thinking about abstraction and not using local colour following very interesting online courses with stivespainting with eiselejill and houghliz #schoolofpainting #happytoshare #coastal #coastpainting #seascape #seapainting #riseart #emergingartist #emergingartistplatform #abstractpainting #colouristpainter #surreyartist #oilpainting #oilpainter #artofinstagram #ontheeasel #studiopainting #oiloncanvaspainting #oiloncanvas #abstractedlandscape #abstractart #expressiveart #artcurator #artbuyers #artgalleries #londonartgallery #paintbritain #paintingoftheday #luxuryinteriors...
I’ve tackled the next stage of my beacon paintings. Decided to do all 4 in one go, referring to my detailed charcoal drawings and adding two colours, Payne’s grey and white. I chose an earthy pink for the ploughed fields and a washed out greeny blue for the winter grass. I decided to use a credit card, plant label and catalyst wedge to add the paint to keep it loose!
This week we’re celebrating International Women’s Day #IWD2021. Join us on 12th March for an intimate conversation with Alice Mumford (@alicemumford) and her daughter Eleanor, who is finishing her final year at art college, about what it means to be a woman artist today and how the mentors of the past can shape the future.
They will delve into profound questions around the need to make art and the legacies that guide or obstruct us as women. Join this free online session via our website, link in bio. Share your own work with us to celebrate #IWD2021 using the tags #WomenArtistsInspire and #SchoolofPainting....
This is one of the panels I'm working on for houghliz stivespainting abstracted landscapes course. I am loving looking at simplifying the landscape, marrying up my intuitive process with decision making and finding a balance between these two things (not easy let me tell you). Its always good to push your comfort zone, well with art anyway.
Anyway I'm off for more art explorations have a wonderful Friday. X...
3rd pose There was a lot of stuff to draw in the pose and try get a sense of a room #schoolofpainting #stivesschoolofpainting #alicemumford #onlineclass #drawingwithsticks #ink #20minpose #inspiredbymatisse #matisse #stripes #room #drawingoftheday #drawing #dothe100dayproject #the100dayproject
I’ve added some oil pastel lines to the four paintings I worked on yesterday. Pretty pleased with these but not being precious about any parts of it, staying open to the process. Next lesson is in a week so I’ll leave them now and see what happens next.
I took alicemumford class at stivespainting this week and LOVED the class!!! Here is my first ‘thinking board’ as Alice calls them. You can swipe to see it closer up. The class was called An Introduction To Matisse - Pattern and Illusion. If you ever get a chance to take a class from Alice Mumford I would highly recommend it. She’s really great at what she does. She also has some AMAZING and inspiring videos on YouTube. #schoolofpainting #stivesschoolofpainting #stivesschool #matisse #patternlikematisse #matissepattern #paintinglikematisse #patterntips. #howtopaintpattern #patternpainting #arttips #greatartteacher #artclass #funartclass #paintingloose #loosepainting #paynesgreclub #artonyoutube #artoninstagram...
Brojni umetnici nisu imali pojma koliko je ova boja otrovna. Pariško zelena je bila posebno popularna kod impresionista i postimpresionista, a posebno je voleo Pol Sezan. Smatra se da su upravo Van Gog i Mone, koristeći ovu boju dobili neurološke smetnje, a Mone i slepilo....
Today was the last lesson from St Ives School of Painting, Abstraction: Landscape a Sense of Place with Liz Hough. Thanks to the wonders of high speed broadband, even in the remotest parts of Cornwall, I was able to watch it while on holiday. For the last lesson Liz went through work submitted by students and pared them up with the likes of Bryan Wynter, Breon O’Casey, Ben Nicholson and Michael Porter. She pulled together all 22 tasks we’ve done over the past 5 months and encouraged us to choose one part and develop it further, to aim to have something completed to round off the course. I’ve loved all the tips and tricks she’s taught us; to abstract the landscape while creating space and depth in our image, how to work loosely, compile a colour palette, add motifs and know when your work is finished. She’s been a brilliant teacher and it’s been totally inspiring to learn such a lot from her. Thank you so much houghliz. This is a small selection of the pieces I’ve been working on on the course, none complete yet, but all waiting for me when I get back home. The place I chose to work on was the Beacon next to our house and because of the three lockdowns it has become even more significant for me. I feel very happy to be increasingly connected to this place. #abstraction_lizhough #schoolofpainting #stivesschoolofpainting #doitfortheprocess #contemporarypainting #hereforthestills...
Started my drawings for Abstraction - A Sense of Place, the workshop I am doing with stivespainting and houghliz
Enjoying working in charcoal, my takeaway from today was scratching into the paper with a drawing pin and smudging the charcoal across it, lovely lines! 😄
Sometimes I’m into hard definite lines and other times loose , can’t work out which suits me better still evolving. This is a detail of a large painting. It’s all quite free and energetic, might just be dependant on my mood.
