Just returned from an absolutely inspirational week with the amazing Australian artist Robert Hagan. We were living in a John Constable painting and actually staying in Willie Lott’s Cottage which featured in The Haywain and other of Constable’s paintings!! We managed to paint 6 works in 4 days and this completely different way of laying on paint absolutely unlocked the block I have had for about a year about painting anything. As I have been painting animals and wildlife for so long and had not felt able to tackle anything else, this completely broke down any inhibitions I have about painting anything else – in Robert’s artistic world anything and everything is possible. Here are just a few offerings from last week – more to follow shortly.
