I am continuing to explore the translation of field sketches into prints from cut lino. The idea – not yet realised – is not to copy the picture into a print form, but to abstract from the sketch into a set of patterns.
Posted before, this sketch was made in water-soluble pencil while standing in sleet near Malham Cove in Yorkshire.
I miss that place. In this weather, the sink-holes must be the sites of torrential falls. I need to arrange a few days walking.
This last image was from a previous linocut of Malham Cove. I had used the inky roller to burnish the back of the paper and then, on a whim, printed over the top.
