thoughts

I don't know how to take what I see and abstract it.

I don't know what to do.

I don't really know what I'm looking for/at.

I don't know what I'm trying to achieve/say.

What if I do it wrong?

I have felt all these things!

In this free guide I share with you 3 of the key ideas I use in my abstracting process.

I’m Natalie and I’m a semi-abstract

landscape artist from Cornwall.

I've spent the last few years digging deep into myself and my creative practice to understand what I’m trying to do, what I want to say and how to do that most effectively.

Through this process I’ve got really clear on my motivations, my interests and my strengths, and have finally developed a sustainable studio practice that excites and fulfils me without the frustration and blocks that used to hold me back.

Having tried lots of different approaches that I learned from other artists I finally realised they just didn’t suit me and the way I work. I’ve never been a sketchbook-er, and going out making lots of small sketches to scale up into larger work just didn’t motivate me at all. It would end up in frustration and disappointment and a lack of understanding why this method, which appeared to work for so many artists I admired, just didn’t work for me.

By learning what didn’t work for me, I was able to develop my own process that focused on my strengths and interests.

In this free download I share with you some of my key concepts for abstracting.

You'll get access to this in 2 formats, a video (which should play on most devices) and a pdf booklet.

Whilst I'm a landscape artist, these methods aren't limited to that subject, so do apply them to your own areas of interest and see where they take you.
