I saw this massive cloud system building over the East Devon countryside after a walk on the Pebblebed Heaths. It was so elegant and sculptural that I couldn’t resist turning it into a print. Woodbury Common and hillfort appear in the background.
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.
