A New Print

I’ve finally finished my new print ‘Eider Ducks’. Based on personal observations and photos near the Farne Islands, it measures 30 x 40cms. and is printed on Bristol Board using T.N.Lawrence oil base relief inks. It’s a reduction linoprint using thirteen different hues/tones of colour.

I chose to bring the the female to the foreground for, although the male has a more dramatic plumage, I really wanted to emphasize the more subtle colouring of the female.

The print is for sale and details can be found on the Sea/River Bird folder on the ‘Birds’ page.

Many thanks again to Conrad Cookson who made the table top easel for me that has been a great help and to Keith Dickinson for his expert photographic help today!

Craven Arts Christmas Exhibition

 It seems too early to be really thinking about Christmas yet but I've just taken some of my prints to Skipton Town Hall's gallery in preparation for Craven Arts Christmas exhibition. Opening on the 11th November and running until the 23rd December, it's going to be a super exhibition, reflecting the enormous breadth, depth and quality of creative endeavour in the area.  It will be well worth a visit!
