INSTANT PRINT? - WELL ALMOST




On the Saturday I went riding with my chums on the Berkshire Downs.
Wonderful scenery and much to draw and photograph; I returned with one sketch and several decent photos.


On the Sunday taking my drawing, and the photograph of one particular place see I created a linocut - also illustrated.

On the Monday taking my linocut and visiting my printmaking tutor to Christine Lock I used her press to create the final piece - very pleasing linocut print.

Sometimes I'm surprised at how easy it is to have an idea and take it into another medium and then move it on into print making - the final result is extremely satisfying and a privilege.
