Speeton and Bempton Cliffs
253mm x 360mm
Edition of 3
Finished the latest print in only 6 colour passes. Although as each printing was a blended roll there are actually somewhere around 10 or 11 colours in the print. This has given it a certain colour harmony, which has gone someway towards what I was trying to achieve. And it was an interesting experiment to make an entire print using blended colourings. But looking at it against the rest of my work it looks out of place, almost as if it has been done by someone else.

Having been busy with the preparation for a couple of very enjoyable fairs last weekend. It's been a couple of weeks since I did any work on the new print. Normally I don't like to have such a long interruption, but this print is something of an experiment in a new method of working so it doesn't really matter this time. I've felt that the last couple of prints have been a bit laboured, or at least making them has felt that way to me. So with this print I have tried, by using a series of blended inkings, to both drastically reduce the number of stages and introduce some colour harmony into the work.
This is the block inked for the 3rd colour
and the 4th colour printed
Another 2 colours and it should be done.
