St Ives 15.3

Reading about Peter Lanyon I realise I never write about places being in a particular place with a person. It’s always just about the landscape, devoid of human. I wonder if that will begin to change? It reminds me of Howard Hodgkins. I want to ask, how do I not just replicate these artists? Remake what they were doing? Be current? I feel embarrassed asking those questions!


I just finished the photorealistic painting of the cardboard staged St Nicholas. It was kind of painful to paint. Very long and slow and painful. How do I abstract these more? I think studying the paintings of Peter Lanyon would be helpful.

I could read Lanyons writing, which is apparently mystical.
