Leith School of Art – Landscape Artists

Where do I belong? Through much meandering, nowhere, really. Now the sea is close by.
"Our home is the garden, and deep within us is the yearning to hear its song again" - John Philip Newell, 'Christ of the Celts'. Land's edges, native tree habitats and ancient hills echo familiar, deserted, liminal spaces of long ago; a frame within which to explore shape and colour.
"Colour must (...) give things greater style by simplifying them" - Vincent van Gogh. My empty spaces reflect a pilgrimage through the crowd into a quieter, different creative space.
Last year, the Drawing Course drew me - literally! - into looking and looking again. It has been a "deep end" experience again this year among a cohort of experienced and gifted Artists.
