"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Finished Linocut Print

Kilnsey Crag, Wharfedale. 150mm x 240mm 7 colour reduction linocut.
An edition of 5 hand pulled prints.

Although printed in 7 colours, the first colour. A very pale yellow grey around the cloud edges hasn't come out very well through the scanner, so only 6 colours have come out in the image above. This is the first in a planned series of prints depicting crags in the Yorkshire Dales.

This has worked out very nicely. It would be interesting to see it with the highlights on the clouds, but actually I like it as it is. It looks clean and fresh.

I look forward to seeing the rest of the series.

Hi Keith
Thanks for the comment, I'm happy with how it turned out. I thought at one point that I'd overcomplicated it by using too many colours.

Lovely simplicity to the style, I like this very much.
