Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns

Author: Nancy Power

'Printmaker Nancy Power's work reflects the life around her. Be it a changing rural landscape, the decaying plants in her garden, or her collection of hand crafted ceramics, she finds inspiration from many sources. Deliberately eclectic in subject matter, her work is harmonised by her colour palette and distinctive inking process. Nancy uses the reduction method of lino printmaking; carving away at just one block for each consecutive colour to reveal the final image. By inking from dark to light, as opposed to the more traditional light to dark, Nancy's work has engaging depth and colour layering.'

  1. Great shots Nancy! I love the one of the waterfall, it feels like I’m right there in front of it! Thanks for following my blog, it’s much appreciated.

    1. Thanks Ben! I was actually quite pleased with how it came out as I had to be very still and it was quite windy that day. Your photos are much better than mine so that’s why I’m following you!

  2. Thanks for your nice comment. Yes, even though it’s not a huge waterfall (it’s a water feature, really), it was quite noisy. You can go and look from behind it too which is always a bit weird!
