‘Drawing the landscape is exhilarating. It brings you into the present moment like nothing else’
Sam Boughton has joined us this year to teach our exciting new three-day short course - Abstracting the Wild Coast
Observational drawing is at the heart of my creative practice. With a BA and MA in Illustration I have kept sketchbooks all my life. Finding a solitary drawing spot at the edge of a quiet field fills me with anticipation and excitement. It’s a deeply personal experience.
To sit and witness clouds racing across the sky, birds circling above and trees rustling, you feel an intense sense of being alive. It’s this raw, natural energy that inspires my work. To distil this ‘sense of place’ into a language of marks and colour is a never ending journey.
