"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."

Next Steps

The next few stages are going to look a bit messy as I will only be inking up part of the block. Hopefully all will be pulled back together later. First up is a light green across the lower half of the print.

Followed by a second blue, again across the lower half of the print.

and then a couple of splashes of red.

this looks a bit garish. the next colour, a pale blue green should tone it down.

The next colour should pull the print back together but there is a bit of cutting to do first.

Catching Up

Its been a while since my last post so time for a bit of a catch up. The Holmfirth Art Market last weekend was a hugely enjoyable event, I am only sorry that it has taken me so long to get round to taking part in it. Sales were good and it was a chance to catch up with friends that I hadn't seen since being at Skipton in August. I will definately be applying to take part in next years markets. A couple of days ago I had confirmation of a place at a new event to be held in the walled garden at Temple Newsam house in Leeds next April. I'll post more details about this later.

As for art work, well since my last post I  have finished this.
