Last Light - came from a photograph I took last year walking around Gurnard's Head as the sun was setting and amazingly it had lined up with the rocks to send that shard of light across the sea. I looked for it again this year but it hadn't quite lined up. Stupidly I forgot to flip the photo before I started, so I can't call it Towards Pendeen ha ha.
This print has so many colours I lost count and as usual there are bits I love like the lichen on the rocks at the front and the shard of light on the sea but also bits I'm not sure about like the rays are a bit strong but on the whole it's so full of light and energy it'll brighten up any day. I can't wait to see it in a frame.
Here's the plan on the lino
There was so much in the picture I decided to just print the sky first.
Here's the first 4 colours in the sky
A few more colours down, blues into the sky and sea.
Orange lichen and green on the rocks
the start of land and red lichen
more colours on the sky, sea, land and rocks
I dulled down the rays with a bit of watered down ink
