First rough proofs of Goat Willow

 

Well, now I know why I do reduction prints most of the time… Although this is looking as I had hoped it would so far, I always forget how much more faffing and cutting and re proofing I need to do when doing a multi block print! I keep telling myself that it will be worth it in the end and at least I can experiment with colours, which I can’t do so much with a reduction. It’s all part of the process though and I have discovered an easier way of offsetting the key block onto the other blocks, one of the many things I have learnt today!

'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.'
