"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."

Blundering back on track

Continuing this masterclass in how not to go about making a reduction linocut. As the foreground green is now too dark, I overprinted a light green.

and then a darker blue onto the river and the distant hill.

after nine colours we are nearly finished. Two colours to go now I think.

What an amazing transformation! How clever.

Yes, I think this is a masterclass in recovering from a potential disaster.

Hi Jennifer and Keith,

I very nearly scrapped this print and gave up on it. I'm glad I didn't. It's not what I intended but I'm still pleased with the way its working out.
