Tufted duck and white goose – progress so far

Oh how I do seem to like to challenge myself! If I ever do water again it will be a completely flat and calm mill pond… For this Tufted Duck the majority of the work is in the water, not the little ducky himself (or herself). There are four layers already and probably another four to go.

Then my white goose (I’m sure there is a proper name for him, I will find out!) with 5 colours so far, and again, probably at least another four to go.

Better get on then, got thank in for my exhibition next Thursday, and I’ve got another three prints to do before 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.'
