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.
