|The mini print -Rainy Day on Mull- pegged up to dry. Edition of 10.|
Monday, 27 August 2012
|For this little print I wanted to return to a windowsill still life.|
I have always been inspired by the scottish paintings of Winifred Nicholson and I wanted to create something that evoked the atmosphere of a rainy day on the Isle of Mull.
|I wanted to include the little pottery crofts that we bought on Iona.|
|As with all my linocuts, I have printed the key block straight onto additional lino blocks ready to carve the different colour layers. Here I have drawn the white areaa to be carved away from this block.|
|The print after cream, pale grey, aqua grey, dark grey, pale pink and dark pink layers have been printed.|
