Influenced by the Shoreham landscapes of Samuel Palmer, and his teacher John Nash, here are the eerily empty landscapes of Essex, Sussex Downs, and elsewhere.Quiet Landscapes: watercolours of Eric Ravilious 1 — The Eclectic Light Company
Cut backs or not, we can all still appreciate art. You can look but you don’t have to buy. You can buy and it doesn’t have to cost the earth.
I will carry on with my landscapes, seascapes and look to increase my watercolours and pastels (even oil pastels, once my favoured medium).
Why do I do it? The chance to capture that indefinable something.
To augment the oils and acrylics, there will be some watercolours coming soon.
At one stage this was my favourite medium and it will be nice to get back in the swing, so to speak. I like their immediacy but usually, for me at least, there’s no going back once your committed.
A bit like life, really, watercolours.
