Garden Ghosts

November 10, 2010

Those of you who are familiar with the blog will be aware of my recent fascination with negative space. After buying the Ladybird Book of Garden Birds at Spitalfields Antique Market I began the labour intensive task of cutting out the birds. As I pinned what was left behind on my studio wall I discovered the missing birds created a rather nice effect. My idea was switched and the result is this large scale digital print in an edition of 20. Size and price available here.

Chine Colle

February 9, 2009

I am still trying to perfect the art of etching and in particular the technique of Chine Colle. It feels like I am kind of getting there after discovering some fantastic Japanese papers at Falkiners. I am particularly happy with this colour combination.

I went to Barcelona in November, one of my favourite cities. This is a drawing of a bird and a leaf carved out of stone on a shop front.

Itching to Etch

I have now finally mastered how to print my etchings, better still they are getting a fantastic response. I have already sold half of the edition of the ‘Tree’ further on in the blog. Here is a new variation of my owl etching. Can’t wait to start the new term in January.
