A FUN day at Yarner Woods on the Granite Elements Project. Members of Bovey Tracey Society of Artists were inspired to create. We walked and explored gaining a sense of place. The bird song, the character of the trees, the strength of the granite. We talked of poetry, geology & history and how it informs our making. AND the joy of seeing M, at 85 years, able to join us in our outdoor workshop. Thanks Albert at Natural England for the Landy!
A school, flock, parliament, charm or murder of artists? A very enjoyable day creating at Yarner. We are all responding to PLACE on the Granite Elements Project. Made a start on the earth painting, the rain helped. Happy face.
