Echinacea flower finished

Well, this was a labour of love, and slight frustration! Ten layers in all and a few duds along the way (inky finger prints mostly, no matter how careful I am…), so I think I will end up with about 16 prints, instead of twenty.

I’m quite happy with it though, and it sits in with the set of six ‘Botanical’ prints, which is a nice even number to display at The Art Market in York at the end of the month. Talking of which, I have a few more prints to do so had better get to it!

'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. Very strong. Your color choices really make this stand out. Helpful the blue fade of the sky but I really think the purple makes it pop out and attracts the viewer’s eye.

  2. Oooh love this Nancy! The colours are great. A compliment to the set of your botanical prints. Good Luck in York 😀
