Walking And Painting The Landscape

Have you ever thought of drawing on a daily basis? Join artists Simon Carter and Susan Barnet on a walk to inspire you to do just that.

  • Booking essential

Renowned painter Simon Carter takes workshop participants on a walk through the wild Orford Ness landscape. Drawing and painting as we go, Simon will share the details of his own practice which consists of walking and drawing as a daily activity. This practice affords a way of observing and recording landscape that translates topographical points to marks on a page.
