My little chickens

While working on three other new prints I am also doing two of my chickens. I’m hoping to get a feel of a woodcut with these, with just a black key block, the white of the paper and a reddish brown mid tone – kind of a chiaroscuro effect, I think…well, maybe not quite that dramatic.

'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.'
