"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."

New Print - First Stage

I've started a new print. I'll not show the initial working drawings as they will give the reveal away. Although the subject may already be apparent to some at this stage.

First colour after some very fiddly initial carving is this warm light grey. This colour will only show in a few areas but will help give some form to the lighter areas. 

After carving this stage the rest of the print should be relatively straight forward. Another five or six colours should see it finished. Stay tuned!
