Why are landscapes my favourite to paint?
I love the colours of the land; whether minimalist or exaggerated. Never a practical girl, I must be reminded that function rules before colour and form.. What good is a church or barn if nothing can enter. No small trap doors that you must crawl into or windows where no light can enter. I mix up the colours on my palette and start to fill in the forms of farm land, mudflats or village homes. But, remind myself to think of the function.
