An English Rose

The proof for another new print for O England My Lion-Heart arrived this morning from the Print Block - here's a small detail, an english rose (and a hint of irish shamrock!). 

This is the first time I've successfully attempted combining inks to create additional colours - in this case, a blue and the yellow to make the green (which I adore) and a purple from the same blue and the rose red. Chuffed with the results!

Wildman of the Woods

Got another of the new prints for 'O England My Lion-Heart' this morning, ready for numbering, signing and framing.
Here, a teasing glimpse of a detail, a wily wodewose watching wildly in the woods…

Hurrah for …

A tiny teasing glimpse of one of my new prints for my forthcoming solo show, O England My Lion-Heart, at the Lion Street Store in Rye, opening Friday 1st May.

No prizes for guessing the subject matter here!

Tiles & Tribulations #6

Tiles & Tribulations #6
Progress is being made on the long, slow, winding road to making my own Delft tiles. Here my take on a traditional design, a triton or merman a-blowing on his horn. The contrast between line-work and wash could have been greater, but over all I'm pretty content with the results.
The tile as painted…

...and after firing and ageing, showing the beginnings of some pleasing surface craquelure (desired).

Things going well on the delft tile trail. Here an earthenware tile with the traditional image of a Hare seated upon a tussock. As well as testing the contrast between fill/ wash and line, I also wanted to see how the (Chromium Oxide) green carnation corner motifs would look, as I've a fire-place tile project for later in the year that (ideally) calls for them. Pretty happy with the result.
