I’m really pleased to have been asked to contribute to Digital Arts’ new feature on landscape illustration.

In the article I discuss what ingredients I think make good landscape art, as well as some things I’ve learned about composition and colour. I also describe the collage process I’ve adopted recently and the tools that I use.

It was fun to write – I realised that after 15 years of professional work, I have LOTS of opinions on this topic! Brian Millar, Cassandre Monoriol and Michael Driver, also contributed to the article, and it’s been super interesting to read their insights too.
