Sharon Bamber Fine Art
The 1000 Mile Walk:
A journey with artist Sharon Bamber on her 1000 mile walk across Europe, painting the Way of Saint James
Connecting to the heart of the Sense of Place on a journey that stretches back centuries
On 1 September 2018, I set out to walk and paint the Way of Saint James, also known as the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. I walked 1000 miles (1600km) through France and Spain alongside my donkey, Dupon, stopping to paint en plein air every 5 miles along the entire route. The journey took 6 months.
The resulting body of work shown below, consisting of 200 plein air paintings, tells the story of this ancient route as it is today.
