Almost there with the Goat (Pussy) Willow print

Had a bit of a hiatus from printing lately, too many other things on…rescuing chickens being just one of them! But that’s another story…

Back to the willow print and I’ve been testing blue after blue to get the one I thought I wanted. Almost there but still can’t decide between the more turquoise colour or the more teal colour. This is the problem I have when doing a multi block print, I can never make my mind up! When I do a reduction print I just have to make a decision and go for it. I guess I could do a small edition of both?

'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.'

    1. Thanks Richard! I agree with you about the lighter blue/ turquoise. To be honest this photo doesn’t really show the colour at its best, it is a lovely ‘fresh’ colour and very springlike! I’ll go with that one then.
