Two Tree Studies

Two Tree Studies

Two photographs I took earlier this year, both have been waiting in my head to become prints. The Loe, Porthleven, Cornwall and a tree lined path on Clapham Common. From November and July. Two quite different images I wanted to figure out how, to translate them into prints. The Loe seemed as if it would be quite straight forward, in that it was a nice black detail to cut and print over the water and sky. Clapham seemed all light and impressionistic and I wasn't quite sure how I was going to tackle it. One I thought would be tight and...

Loch Fyne, Ben Vorlich

Loch Fyne, Ben Vorlich

My parents used to live in Crinan on the west coast of Scotland. The drive up and down along the loch sides was beautiful. Driving back home one evening in June 2018 it was so gorgeous I just had to stop and take pictures. So this one has been sitting in the back of my mind for a while waiting to be cut. I thought it was perfect because of the contrasts but wasn't sure I could capture that light on the back mountain. The drawing on the lino an idea of the white bits i want to cut out...

Portheras Cove

My inspiration, a photo I took one early evening mid July. I love the colours and the way the water is running down the beach away from you into the sea,  making all those crazy water patterns.

The image reverses back onto the paper when printed so then it's the right way round. This is my basic plan.  Next I marked in white pencil what I wanted to cut out first. This is what will...

Last Summer

Last Summer

I took this photo back in July, walking back up from a lovely evening family picnic on the beach near Pendeen. I love the way the last rays of sunshine catch the grasses and flowers on the hillside. That was my challenge for this print. I began with a simple line drawing onto the lino. then cut out everything I wanted to keep white ( the colour of the paper) this bit always amazes me as it's not until a few layers of colour have gone on that you appreciate your first cut. First layer of colour a yellow and...

Sea Rocks

Sea Rocks

Rinsey Cove, Wednesday the 21st November.  A beautiful place and the light was just amazing, and those waves we've had all week have just been fab. I had a good friend Sally to stay this week, PHEW ! just before the new lockdown and I've taken her to see my favourite places. We decided we would do a small piece of art inspired by our day out and about on Wednesday.  I chose this small section of Rinsey Cove beach for a mini linocut. First I flipped my photo so everything is the right way round for cutting.  I like...
