It’s the bittersweet sadness and warm melancholy feeling you get when saying goodbye. This print bids farewell to the day and so long to the summer as the touch of Autumn hangs in the air. The tree in the fields is in Seale, near Elstead, Surrey and can be seen from the North Downs Way as it skirts the village. For me it was part of the school run, taking the back route to avoid traffic (or just for the joy of it) and a place to escape to with the dogs when I needed open space and room to breathe. This print is my quiet moment of reflection before moving on to pastures new. The inks used are Caligo Safe Wash which are oil based inks with high lightfast properties. The paper is Zerkall Extra Smooth 150gsm printmaking paper. As each print is inked and printed by hand there will be slight variations between each print, each one is in it’s own way an original.

Lisa Benson, artist, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. I am an artist and printmaker living on the Somerset coast in the UK. After a career that included art projects for the youth service and a stint as the Youth Arts Coordinator for South West Surrey, illustrating for a national magazine, and several years as a freelance graphic designer, I finally discovered printmaking, predominantly linocut, in 2017. When I found printmaking something clicked, this was the artistic discipline I had been searching for all those years. It combines a carving element, a drawing and painting element, continual problem solving and requires precision amongst the chaos. The thrill of pulling a print never gets old. I am hugely drawn to nature, as so many of us are. Time has become a recurring theme in my work and I find I am often drawn to moments in time that happen today as they could have for hundreds if not thousands of years.
