"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.

Latest works

Been a bit quiet on the posting front  lately but here is a selection of the finished and works in progress so far.

Pendragon Castle, Mallerstang.
Reduction Linocut. 
18 colours printed in 9 stages
Edition of 10

Mezzotint plate in progress. I've been working on this plate on and off since the end of April. I think I've gone as far as I can now and need to take a print from it, to see if what I think is on the plate, translates on to paper. Once I have an impression taken I'll be able to see which areas need further work.

1st stage of a new linocut, a 3 colour blend from top to bottom of warm and cool grey through to a darker warm grey.
