Artists in Lockdown - Aurelia Duplouich, Fine Art Year 1

"I made this series during spring 2020, at the very beginning of lockdown. I was then staying in a farm in southern France where confinement was very strict, and all I was allowed was taking short walks around the farm. And, I didn’t have a single paintbrush or drawing paper with me."

"Our group seemed to bond very early on and the bonds have continued even since lockdown. The course is exactly what I needed to focus and develop my art practice, and I would say that the progress I have made overall is probably beyond my expectations, though still a long way to go!"
