As part of the field module, I spent 4 days in Pembrokeshire surrounded by beautiful landscapes and wildlife. I would have loved to spend longer there to continue to enjoy all that the nature there had to offer. I was inspired to paint nature and landscapes in a more personal way, in a way that I| felt in portrayed how I was feeling at the time.
A large majority of my time in Pembrokeshire was spent in little ‘nests’ that I had made for myself, surrounded by plants and other objects within the landscape. I had felt like I was part of the landscape, rather than a passer-by. I spent hours at a time completely immersed in the landscape while drawing and appreciating the view, often unnoticed by the people around me.
After doing this, I began noticing others who had also created their own ‘nests’ or who seemed to blend into the landscape as if they were part of it and had belonged there. Many of my photographs from the trip include people disappearing into a landscape. I feel as though this inspired my Subject work more than my Field module but has had an overall influence on my work and how I approach landscape art.
