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...

Out to Sea

Out to Sea

I took this photograph looking out across the sea walking back up from Rinsey Cove, my new favourite place. I'm in love with these silver sea patches, the light playing on the water.

First I marked in white crayon an outline of my clouds and the white light I wanted to keep on the sea. Then I cut my first layer of cloud...

My challenge for this print was to capture the submerged seaweed covered rocks which I just love. Here's my print story from the inspiration to the finished artwork. I wanted to get across all the work that goes into producing a linocut print and how long it takes, so I did share this as I went along on my instagram 26th July  I started with a scribbly sketch to make a kind of composition plan. First I drew a simple line drawing in pen on my lino, then I used a white crayon to mark the sea foam and cut...

St Michael's Mount - a linocut story

St Michael's Mount - a linocut story

Earlier this year in March I was driving through Marazion and just had to stop and take photos, the light on the Mount was so dramatic I wondered if I'd be able to catch it on paper. For linocut don't forget to flip your image ! No. 1  Cut out everything you want to keep white. I drew on a simple image in pencil. My first colour was a pale yellow to add the brightness to the contrasting drama. You can see my pencil drawing coming through. No. I mixed 2 pale greys one more yellow than the other. you...
