Lino cut for print exchange 2014

'Au revoir' 2014

It’s been a few months since I last posted anything on here! I have been busy though, honestly, participating in Sketchbook Skool initiated by Danny Gregory. I will post some of that work once I have sifted through my sketchbooks for some decent images!

 

This print here is for this year’s print exchange run by Green Door Printmaking Studio. This is the first time that I have done this sort of print, black only instead of multiple colour. I am quite pleased with how it came out, especially because it is quite small, 10x10cm, and was rather tricky to carve.

Here is a little gallery of the process…

'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. Thank you Sarah! I’m so pleased you like it. It’s based on a photo of my mum from the 1950’s and I’ve always loved the image. She was pretty flattered too!
