Summer Day, Logan Rock

Summer Day, Logan Rock

It was a perfect day for a swim 17th July 2021. And this the perfect place. The water was so beautiful I had to dry off, get my phone and take it back into the sea to try and capture something of what was in front of me. I decided to go with this image to cut, and a challenge to see if it would work as a linocut. There is no white in this image so the first thing I did was to just print the sea area with a very pale yellow. Then mark onto the lino in a...

Helford Passage

Helford Passage

I actually took this photograph the day of my first vaccine injection, 15th March. I had to go to Stithians Showground over near Truro, so I looked for somewhere in that direction to go and explore afterwards. It was a gorgeous day and Helford Passage was just beautiful. I had a lovely afternoon exploring, and then I was very ill for three days. Photo and finished print. There was a lot to get my head around in the making of this print. I loved the photo so much it took me a while before I felt ready to tackle it. Of all...

Watergate Bay

Watergate Bay

8th July 2021, Watergate Bay looking towards Newquay, Cornwall. A gloriously shiny sea full of surfers. The last time I passed this beach it was a long, long empty beach, this time the tide was in and the sand was busy, covered in little groups with body boards and surf boards. I took lots of photos but this is the one I chose to cut. First I drew on the white foam with a white crayon. then I cut and here's the first colour printed, a very pale grey/aqua 2nd cutting and ink on the lino ready to print. Pale...

June 1st, 8pm. Walking the dogs up the fields behind my house. Beautiful light and gorgeous wild flowers. Buttercups, Red Campion and White Cow Parsley, totally inspired to do a smaller, quicker turn around print for a change. Image flipped and plan penned onto my lino. All areas I want to keep white cut out.    first colour inked on the block, it's a very pale blue I wanted to use for the Cow parsley in the shade.  and printed. Next I wanted to capture all those little dots of sunshine buttercups and the first green grass blades caught in...

Bedruthan Steps

Bedruthan Steps

Wowee! I'd wanted to go and explore this place for a while and when I did my breath was taken away. I'm afraid the steps have eroded and I didn't attempt to get down onto the beach (this time) The view laid out before me was outstanding, the presence of those great rocks standing patiently waiting against the inevitable slow destruction of the sea.  I knew I wanted to attempt in my own way to put it down on paper. Starting with a few on the spot sketch book scribbles and lots of photos. Next a plan, for the composition....
