During April and May this year I was lucky enough to be accepted by Lulworth Estate as their in resident illustrator, using drawing as a research tool to investigate Point of View – how I and others see and connect with the landscape.
For the whole of April and the beginning of May I made Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and the space between my second home, visiting up to three times a week and immersing myself in the landscape, battling the elements (yes it did rain and there was lots of wind) and filling sketchbooks with observational drawings, talking to people and discovering the personalities of the place.
After a brief hiatus to complete other project work, I am returning to Lulworth to pull together a drawing walk and complete a series of illustrations that reflect the shapes and textures of the landscape, and helps to connect the place, imagination and the emotions of those who visit.
My blog posts will be - albeit edited - a catch-up of the weeks leading to this point and then commentary on my current working practices and reflection up to the project end in September.
The project so far has been a journey of discovery through drawing and I don't want it to end!!
