"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."

Augustus John, R.A.

Conisborough Castle

The Keep - Conisborough Castle.
9 colour reduction linocut.
270mm x 180mm.

Finally finished the latest linocut of one of Yorkshires most impressive castles. On the whole I'm quite pleased with how this eventually turned out. Even if it isn't quite how it was originally intended. But thats what drives the creative process - always chasing that elusive perfect masterpiece.

Boy, isn't that the truth! ("Always chasing that elusive perfect masterpiece").
And yet, as long as the energy to keep running is there, the chase is the fun part isn't it?

Your print is lovely. As always.
