Cherry Blossom finished!

Finished this just in time to take to Sheffield Makers Fair last Saturday. It took a few experiments to get the colour blue that I had envisaged but I am quite happy with this intense and quite saturated colour.

10 colours

Here are the rest of the process shots. It is always pretty nerve wracking when you get half way through a reduction print and you think “mmmm, did I get that second and third colour right…?”. By then it’s too late and you just have to trust your instincts and go for it! Well, life would be boring if we always knew the outcome of everything we do!

'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.'
