"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."

Augustus John, R.A.

Cutting it Fine

In between spending this weekend getting ready for today's Holmfirth Art Market, I have also managed to get this print finished for Art in the Pen at Carlisle next week. Just need to frame it up now. So here are the final stages.

Colour 9, a brownish grey base colour for the rocks.

Colour 10. Got this wrong I should have printed this before the previous colour.

Colour 11. darker shadows on the rocks.

Colour 12, a darker green across the foreground and then the final dark.

Ebbing tide at Rockliffe.
13 colour reduction linocut. 253mm x 360mm.

That's a place I recognise, Stuart. I like the shimmering effect on the water.

Thanks Keith, it came out pretty much as I wanted it but I worried about losing the effect as the number of colours built up.
