Do you need more confidence to make spontaneous drawings and paintings?
Does fear of failure hold you back?
Do you feel it’s time to move away from purely factual representation to a personal expression of landscape?
Would you like your work to feel more free and less ‘tight’?
Do you despair of simplifying a scene?
