Cornwall | Trewidden Studio 15

When it comes, the landscape listens -
Shadows hold their breath.

Emily Dickinson

Mark has spent over twenty years with Cornwall as his main base and has a huge depth of knowledge of the far west having possibly walked every footpath in all weather. We offer a three and five day workshop based at the Trewidden estate, studio 15.

Time will be spent out in the landscape of West Penwith working with everything the landscape has to offer. Paintings, drawings are often taken back to the studio and developed further with a more considered approach to resolving works. The workshops are fluid and are never formulaic taking an acute response to weather condition and what is being produced, this approach has led to people returning many times to further their practice. Students are actively encouraged to use natural materials collected from the landscape including soils and simple tools in their painting process. This workshop encourages an experimental approach to landscape painting which will enable students to see the process of painting in a broader more intuitive way.
