[The Landscape Painter...], Unpublished Manuscript

The unpublished manuscript probably dates from 1956 or so judging by some of the references it contains. If that is the case, then it is the last text of any length which Phillips left us. It is untitled, and the title provided is derived from the first words of the text. How the manuscript was to be published is unknown. The structure of the piece is fairly loose, and seems to offer Phillips the opportunity to talk about his love of nature and of sketching outdoors. It also provides a glimpse into how he conducted his landscape painting classes in Banff. The following is provided as a kind of table of contents for the piece.
