'I think it’s always interesting to see an artist’s work in response to different landscapes and environments. So here, in the way that some of the French artists react to their experience of London in this exhibition. I travel in order to research for my work. I went to Bavaria to draw from some of their famous castles. It helped me gather information for this drawing. Bringing new work back injects something fresh into studio and hopefully into future work.’ - Olivia Kemp

'In Sisley’s work I could see the painted lines were almost all the same size and knitted together places. I love the way the direction of a line can create texture and shape and the challenge of needing to find a new mark to describe something, even a simple transition between brick and rock. For me, working in monochrome heightens the challenge.’

‘The even painted lines and measured approach to the surface in the several of the plein air works in the exhibition really appealed to me. I admire the way the paint handling is so balanced all over, drawing my attention to specific areas the artist has emphasised. It’s something I can see echoed in my own approach to the page. In this work I tried to balance the small areas of space with particular details I want the eye to land on.’ - Olivia Kemp

'There were some impressive etchings in the show. I found myself drawn into the foreground of one depicting a garden scene. I love the close observation of debris. The careful and controlled depiction of mess presents an almost ridiculous oxymoron, which I like the play with. This came to the fore in this work: Only Then, We’ll Leave The Woods. Sometimes my foregrounds almost look like someone has been in and hoovered up in between the objects.’ - Olivia Kemp

'Some of the works in the #ImpressionistsinLondon exhibition were said to be done all in one sitting. I like this idea of the single attempt at an image; it is what draws me to work in pen. I’m not patient with changing and re-working a drawing and I like a permanent medium as it forces me to focus on each line.’ - Olivia Kemp

'I really loved a small work by Corot in the exhibition which was painted in response to a dream. It depicted a future Parisian landscape. This reimagining of a familiar place is something that I could connect with. In my own work I try to create places that subvert and react to the ideals we hold about home and place, imagining alternative terrains. This drawing, The Archipelago, was the first in an ongoing “strange worlds” series and is inspired by a trip I took to Norway.’ - Olivia Kemp

'I have created a series of studies in watercolour, referencing the six of Monet's paintings on display as part of the Impressionist exhibition. Each one hints at the colours used and the composition of the scene, abstracted through the use of disjointed, individually painted marks.' - Roanna Wells

'My practice investigates visual processes of repetition and the study of multiples, through the use of detailed mark making techniques. I was fascinated with Monet's paintings of the Houses of Parliament during his time in London, painting one scene over and over in order to fully explore the light quality and colours at a particular time of day.' - Roanna Wells

'Starting with an outline sketch, in water erasable pen, on the fabric I paint freehand with thread. As the colours build I add texture using stitch variation such as French Knots for bubbles, Seed Stitch to represent splashing water and an extended Bullion Stitch, evocative of the twisting nature of falling water.’ – Alison Wake

'Walking the trails and paths of the Peak District my eyes are drawn to the industrial influences which have shaped the area, like those that feature in the paintings of Sisley, Pisarro and Monet’s paintings of London in the late 19th and early 20th century.
Viaducts, carrying what was the old Midland Railway, crisscross the River Wye. Looking up, the Victorian architecture perfectly complements arching branches of beech and ash trees.’ – Alison Wake

Today’s #ImpressionistsInspired artist is @cognissart who is sharing her textile artworks and an insight into her intricate making process.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
'Embroidery as a medium requires an unusual approach to composition and process. Unlike painting, where the background and sky is often applied first with foreground detail as final touches, I tend to start with foreground detail – e.g. leaves and branches – finishing with the deep background such as sky. This means that stitches for the background can be kept short, helping the threads lay flat and remain in place.
Like in Monet’s Thames series, Minninglow Beeches depicts the same stand of beech trees as in Minninglow Beeches, Autumn but a year previous, in the differing seasonal light of spring.’ – Alison Wake

'Living in the heart of the Peak District National Park I am inspired by the macro and micro landscapes surrounding me. The variation in season, weather, light and mood create ever changing vistas which I utilise in my work. Monet’s Thames series, featured in the Impressionists in London exhibition at Tate Britain, includes a number of interpretations of the view to the Palace of Westminster from St Thomas’s Hospital. Likewise, Minninglow Beeches, Autumn depicts a favourite stand of beech trees, which I pass regularly when walking the dog, in the differing seasonal light of spring and autumn.’ – Alison Wake

'Living in the Peak District, but originally a city girl from Leeds, I am neither a true local nor a tourist. Like the Impressionist refugees in London I see the area as a working landscape but also with the fresh eyes of a visitor. Local farmers cutting silage and harvesting are unaware of the fascinating patterns they produce on the fields. Pikehall Harvest is inspired by the art they create without even knowing.’ – Alison Wake

'Like Monet, I tend to focus my attention on landscapes rather than people. But most of my work illustrates the influence of people on the landscape. In Please Close the Gate? Bamford Moor the run down, damaged old fence evokes the presence and impact of working people, past and present, who have shaped the Peak District into what we see today.’ – Alison Wake

#WorkoftheWeek is Martin Boyce's new site installation, Remembered Skies. A constellation of illuminated, tumbling letters spell the work's title across the paved terrace outside Tate Britain.

The title is inspired by the compositions of JMW Turner’s paintings, whose skies were a combination of the seen, imagined and remembered.
