New Lake District prints

Twelve blocks, two months, three print editions…. I don’t usually create my prints using multi blocks, I am a die-hard reduction girl! But, I thought I would challenge myself with these images of the Lake District. I have spent a lot of holidays here and am sure to go many more times as it is one of the most beautiful places in the UK.

And here are the blocks!

'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.'
