"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."

Eyemouth Trawler, Colours 2 and 3

Printed the second blue colour and then a light brown colour. This colour will not show much on the finished print other than on the timber edge to the harbour wall in the foreground. The blue colour was a complete accident. I had intended mixing a different tone but when this colour appeared on the mixing glass I decided to use it instead. It means adjusting the tones of the other colours to follow so as to maintain the colour harmony. And the print will look different to how I intended but there is nothing new about that!

Looking at this line of prints hanging to dry, I think its about time I invested some time and effort in making a more hi-tech drying rack.
