Elizabeth Blackadder’s loose and expressive drawing was influenced by the flattened perspective and empty rural space of Japanese art. Here, Blackadder merely suggests aspects of the landscape’s features using frenetic lines and brushstrokes that imbue energy into the open composition. Native to Scotland, Blackadder frequently drew and painted Scottish landscapes, often using a mixture of media – here paint, pencil and crayon – to evoke the wilderness and the weather.
