/Park in Autumn, Linocut

An almost abstract group of trees in a small park, with leaves turning red in autumn. This is a hand-burnished linocut on Japanese paper, using black oil based ink and finished with red applied with a brush.

To hand-burnish a print, the lino plate is inked up with a roller and then a piece of paper is placed on the lino. I used the back of a spoon to rub the back of the paper, which then picked up the ink. I needed to touch the spoon on my hair every now and again to reduce the static which may have lifted the paper!

Notice that the leaves almost have a mind of their own and are moving away from the trees and becoming increasingly abstract. I enjoyed making the shapes and marks when I was cutting the grooves in the lino.

/Greek Church Print #5

The beautiful dome of a Greek Church is nestled amidst a small copse of cypress trees. The cross is accentuated by the deep yellow sunset and a hint of flowing water ripples below the church. 'Greek Church 5' is a one off monotype print, printed on Snowdon Cartridge paper with oil based inks.

I created 'Greek Church 5' as a group of monoprints in one day, using paper cut outs, torn paper and pieces of bark to give texture to the vertical shapes. I inked up a metal plate, then inked up the paper cut outs and bark in different hues and overlapped them on the plate before running them through the manual press onto paper.

Previous impressions add shadowy richness and so each print is unique but posses the same shapes and qualities.

At the mouth of the River Otter, Otter Head in Budleigh Salterton, Devon, England is a favourite haunt for most locals. The pine trees cut through the horizontals in this most gorgeous of places.
