Brushing up memories and conclusions: the life of a landscape painter

Jonathan Warrender, a graduate of Camberwell School of Art and artist in residence at Chatsworth, talks about how, for over 30 years, he has wintered in his studio but spent his summers in the company of birds.  He shares with us the discipline and dedication involved in learning how to look, and the complexities of finding one’s ‘voice’ as an artist.

We hear about his revival of the Dutch School ‘Bird’s Eye View’, the adventures of travelling with his paints, and the stresses and strains of fulfilling commissions to make a living through art.

Jonathan elaborates on the pleasures and challenges of working in a ‘Capability’ Brown landscape whilst recording views of the Chatsworth Estate.
