Print Preparation

I had a disappointing day at the press last Thursday. It was my own fault. I hadn’t got round to working out what I wanted to do that day so I settled for sizing down an old drawing and winging it. The mark making worked in parts. The right hand size is getting there. But the image was not good overall and some of the lines have bitten too deeply to remedy easily.
 This week I am ready early.

A line drawing...

 and a tonal study.
Fingers crossed.
I’ve also started work on some monotypes. At the moment I think they’ll turn into this month’s Bakers Dozen Book but I’ll wait and see.


  1. As 'winging it' is standard practice for me I see all the good stuff in your first print. The tonal study works as a painting in its own right and that would be enough for me but I'm intrigued by the monoprinted landscape pieces. Love the colours and want to know where you'll go with that.

  2. Love the tonal study and am also intrigued by the monotypes - can't wait to see them evolve!


I really appreciate hearing from you. Thank you for taking the time.
