Finished print of Snow Scene #1

Here it is, after much tweeking and a few extra transparent layers for the sky and the shadow at the bottom.


So now on to the next one in the series of four… This is showing the first two layers, the solid black ground with the first dark grey. I quite like this as it looks quite spooky!


Then with some background lines of trees cut out and some more foliage in the foreground, another layer of lighter grey.


Next for this one is an all in one roll of the sky and the snow, hopefully that will work!

'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! I was a bit concerned about the line being right through the middle (the rule of thirds having gone out the window!) but as you said, the trees break it up (enough!).
