Here are a collection of images of landscapes that you can use as inspiration to create your own drawing, painting, collage, poem or piece of writing. You can find more landscape imagery on our ISLAND page and OUTSIDE / INSIDE page, where there are a number of short films that depict the British Landscape. You could try pausing the film on a frame you like and work from this. Or perhaps you can try working from memory. Is there a place that is special to you, that you can bring to mind? Try closing your eyes and visualising this place, then start to sketch or write out what you remember. Or maybe you can try working from your imagination and create an otherworldly, interior landscape such as those of Paul Nash Peter Doig, Lee Krasner.
