Jillifar’s 2019 statement:
Harry Becker was up with the lark to join farm workers on the land. A very different place from today, even tho’ the landscape is still recognisable in many places.
Plein air sketching gets me out into out unique countryside, but perhaps not quite so early as Harry!
Sketching and painting outdoors allows us to hope to capture the atmosphere of the day, reflected in the finished painting, and hopefully be transported back to an occasion, or happy memory which gives a warmth to the heart.
