The village of Elmstead stands near the Roman Stone Street and is 4 miles away from Colchester, Britain’s oldest recorded town, which has a castle, museum and was known to be occupied by the Romans. Other beautiful places near to Elmstead are Frinton, Dedham and Maldon. Dedham Vale has such outstanding scenery that it inspired the painter John Constable. There is a nature reserve at nearby Fingrinhoe and the Beth Chatto gardens are also close by. Wivenhoe Park is another landscaped green space to visit whilst near to Elmstead.
The fact that the area was a subject for Constable obviously recommends it to the aspiring artist so it would be an excellent spot to have a break away whilst sketching or painting. As children, most of us love making marks on a piece of paper even before we can hold a crayon properly. We get great delight from the praise we get when showing our efforts to an adult who offers that it must be the best picture they have ever seen.
People stop drawing and painting
We continue this way until we probably start proper art classes at school and then for some reason an unbelievable amount of people never draw again. It could be the criticism of the teacher or all the rules which are supposed to be adhered to but the fact is that so many people stop painting and sketching even though they once got a great deal of joy out of it.
An art break in Elmstead could be that step which will get you sketching or painting again. Forget about creating a work of genius and simply enjoy the process of creating something as if you were still a child. Cut out the voice of your inner critic who might sound remarkably like one of your parents or your old art teacher and let your inner artist escape.
If you are sitting on the pavement painting with your easel set up and a car which is reversing mounts the pavement and knocks you over, you might need the help of an injury solicitor in Elmstead. It will be more than your easel and paints which will be seriously damaged.
