Mini Print

The mini print -Rainy Day on Mull- pegged up to dry. Edition of 10.

Mini Print in progress.

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.
