Towards the end of 2018 I began to develop an increased interest in impressionistic art. My photography was also beginning to move in this direction but I felt I needed to improve my knowledge of the genre. Subsequent research led me to the work and courses of Eva Polak, a New Zealand photographer, artist, writer and teacher. Early 2019 saw me undertaking her online course ‘An Introduction to Impressionistic Photography’.
This type of photography has enabled me to create the type of evocative images I am drawn to. Here the focus is on light, colour and capturing a feeling or emotion. You can see the influence of this interest and Evas’ course in a number of my images especially within my Impressionistic gallery.
