Larapinta Trail – 2017
In July 2017 Angela joined a group of nine artists, led by Michael Herron, to spend a week working along the Larapinta Trail, west of Alice Springs in central Australia. Camping in semi-permanent tent sites, and with a trailer laden with easels and painting equipment, we travelled through varied terrains and set up to draw and paint from high ridgelines to sheltered gorges and dry riverbeds. Discussing the days’ work around the campfire in the evenings was an opportunity to reflect on the benefit of working directly from nature in striking landscapes with dramatically changing light and colours.
