Easing back to work
Unusually for me I have three prints on the go at once. More on the others later, this one is the simplest, two colours plus black. For once I have a plan and I am sticking to it. This is for a demonstration piece, my intention being to print the final black as part of a talk I will be giving at Doncaster Art Gallery next week. The next colour to print will be a blue for the sky and the colder toned shadows and then a final black to tie it all together. It's a long time since I made a print using such a restricted number of colours and it's been quite a challenge to pare everything down and resist the temptation to add another few colours.
The scene is of Dent in the Cumbrian part of the Yorkshire Dales.
