‘Sunrise’

Ok, so here is my little (10 x 10cms!!) print for this year’s IPE. It’s a reduction print with 6 passes and it really was a little bit fiddly at that size. It has turned out pretty much as I had planned, although the gate wasn’t supposed to be quite that rustic looking. I was using my smallest gouge too – 0.5mm, I don’t think they come any smaller than that!

Just got to wait for them all to dry properly then wrap in tissue paper and send them off to Derby. I could obviously just take them there myself as its only half an hour away, but last time I went there I got shockingly lost and ended up on the road back to Nottingham….

'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.'
