Books and Faces

Once again, I had a stall at Bookface on Sunday at the Rising Sun Arts Centre. It was a great day, there were prints, artists books and workshops (and much more) and I had lots of lovely feedback.
Thanks for N.W. for the photo!

Open for Art 2014

Today I took part of an open air art competition, organised by Jelly Reading.

I am thrilled to say that I won, based on the public vote. Well done to all who entered, it was a good atmosphere and nice to draw outside with other artists. Here are some photos of the shenanigans, thanks to R.K. for the photos.

Reduction, a work in progress

At the moment, I have been working on some lino prints, more specifically reduction lino. It is still dreadfully confusing, even when I know what I'm doing. The first image (the magpie) is a small run of 3 colour prints which I have just finished, the second is the first 2 colours of another 3 colour image, in this case Fulvous Whistling Ducks.

These, and more, will be available at the Whiteknights Trail 2014.

This Summer I will be taking part in the Whiteknights Studio Trail. Here is a five colour screenprint that I have been working on, depicting a Royal Aircraft Factory RE.8 as observed at IMW Duxford.

It is 2014. How better to start off the year than with an Exhibition...
