It’s slow, but it is progress…

I’ve been busy in my ‘day job’ so haven’t had as much time as I would like to  move along with these prints. As I am using the reduction method I am being extra careful about what I am cutting away, and that is partly what is taking me so long! These are going to be very subtle but once the darker tones are on there I think they will look more three dimensional. These are with the second colour printed so now the highlights are starting to pop out.

'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.'
