This print was inspired by the freedom of birds in flight, twisted characterful trees and billowing cloudy skies. Although a composite image it is loosely based on the trees and hills of the Newlands Valley, Cumbria.
I am an Exeter based printmaker with a particularly interest in skies and clouds which provide the focus of my images, the cloudscape often informing the overall composition of the completed print. For me the challenge is to render distant vistas and ethereal skies using a medium usually associated with bold blocks of colour. I achieve this by either lightening colours with white or thinning them with extender. The end result is prints which could be described as having a ‘painterly’ quality.
