The subject of Whispering Trees is the sound of wind passing through trees by water at dusk on a warm summer's evening: A difficult thing to capture! I printed this edition using what I call 'the flying by the seat of my pants method'. That is, printing the whole edition without a clear idea of what the final print will look like, or even what the subsequent layer is going to be until I get to it, allowing the print to create itself. This is a high risk strategy, because the whole edition might not work; a waste of my time, ink and paper. As a print maker, this practice keeps me excited and engaged in the printmaking process and, I think, makes the work more lively. What often appears to be a mistake in the process along the way allows for a more exciting and creative change of direction towards unexpected territory!
