Julie Bolus

Like Harry Becker, plein air sketching is fundamental to my practice as it allows me to totally immerse myself into the environment, responding not only to sights but also to the elements and particular ambience that make up a place. The immediacy of doing this heightens the spontaneity of my mark making and transfers the energy and emotion that I am feeling on to the paper. I usually sketch city life but this year I have been exploring life in more natural environments like allotments and gardens.
