Snow scene series..nearly finished

Nearly there with the series of four snow scenes. Waiting for each layer to dry is exactly like watching paint dry, or in this case, oil based ink. It takes days for each one. Each of these has at least five layers, hence the fact that I haven’t posted for a few weeks! I’m on to the last one now and am up to the third layer on that.

'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.'
