A message from Karen Walters
Hi to all my students,
It all feels so strange at the moment but I hope you’re all well and keeping positive. Thanks for all the lovely work being sent in, I really enjoy looking through it and giving feedback.
I’ve recently produced some abstract landscapes inspired by my local walks in Bushey (only one walk a day!) and imagining the Southern English coastline at this time of year. I try to create a personel interpretation of the landscape so I’ll produce a number of plein-air sketches before I begin my paintings. I’m really inspired by Turner and contemporary artists such as Fred Cuming for his beautiful colour palette and Louise Balaam for her expressive brush marks.
Take care everyone and best wishes to your family.
