Joya: arte + ecología / Angie Lewin / working practice


Here are some shots of Angie Lewin’s working practice while in the studio at Cortijada Los Gázquez. She has been using water based stencils to achieve flat areas of colour sometimes using them as collage to establish composition.


Whilst some ideas are rejected others are kept for closer consideration on another day…


Time in the studio is measured equally with time in the field drawing and establishing plant species. As always artists notes are revealing, the working process, the search for inspiration and design…


Here we see field sketches as well as studies towards new work. She utilises stencils and then draws in pen and ink.



Joya: arte + ecología / Angie Lewin


Angie Lewin is in the Joya studio making fantastic sketches of the flora outside the Cortijada.


It’s interesting to see a printmakers sketchbook as opposed to a painters…


to be portable, amongst other things, Angie is using water based ink and stencils…


she also employs collage…


Its also a great opportunity for creative guests (on our Art Forms in Nature course) to get first hand experience as to the working practice of professional artists such as Angie.


And she is a great instinctive and enthusiastic communicator…


These are stencil prints worked over with pen and ink. It’s fantastic to see our Tassle Hyacinths coming to life in her work.
