Wasn’t aware of this geometrical design until today – going to use it as the starting point for 2 new pieces 1 small and one large quadrant piece to work alongside closer.
I have photographed this piece with the inks still wet, this is exactly the effect that I am achieving working with Harwood King using varnish layers on the prints.. it helps to give a real vibrancy to the colour.
Finished work on the 1 metre square piece Closer, was a challenge working both in a quadrant format and also at that scale in pen ink and of course tea.
Closer illustrates our connection to nature as a two way relationship, our dependency and our appreciation
Work in progress a new larger scale piece of work, whereby I am returning to concentrate on the underlying drawing in the piece. This is the largest piece I have worked on, being 1.2 metres square and is a stepping stone to a planned 1.5m metre square piece to see how the inked foliage combines in scale within the image… more pictures to follow as the piece progresses.
A visit to Harwood King to see Quentin & Nyle on Friday to have a look at the prints of “The Harvest & Rose – & they are looking Gorgeous, really do the originals justice and more than that using varnish they capture part of the creation process of the pieces, – a few tweaks here and there and selecting a printing paper for the finished 2 editions and we’ll be there, look out for them they’ll be around very soon. Then after Harwood King I visited Ink_d gallery in Brighton to meet up with Dan and show some new work. It’s a great space which hosts some amazing work from textile artists – painters and printmakers, loved the layout and the vibe of the place. Dan had displayed 2 of my light boxes alongside the large drawings of ‘Acceptance’ and ‘Gust of wind ‘ which looked great in the space, I left a bonus piece with Dan too which I hope will get seen by visitors to the gallery. Left without a souvenir cigarette by soft furnishing artist Harriet Hammel … but just ordered one from ink_d now, they are amazing!!
