Invited to exhibit at Constable’s birthplace, Charlotte Verity chose to make work on site, and the resulting paintings from her ten day residency in winter were shown at the end of the summer.
‘I came to stay in Flatford in February 2015. It seems to me that throughout the history of painting, the most touching portraits are of loved ones, and the more familiar the land depicted the more interesting the picture. So I wanted to be there long enough to reach a deeper sense of the place by working in the landscape. Mid February was a very good time for me. I enjoyed the clarity of the land with its leafless trees and my experiences became dominated by the water and open skies.’
