Penultimate colour printed

Yes, this is taking a while.

Note to self: do one print at a time, not three. Second note to self: plan things properly, don’t tell yourself that you can keep all the information you need in your head. You can’t.

I am nearly there though, just the darkest shadows to do, but that does obviously mean more carving and the index finger on my right hand has gone a bit numb already. But then these will be done and off to the framers on Saturday. Hurrah! I will get much better photos taken when these are finished and framed. The light here is not so good, what with the incessant rain…

'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.'
