This print was inspired by low tide on the Exe estuary where the Clyst meets the Exe. It’s a place of wide horizons and impressive cloudscapes. This image represents a particularly favourite time for me as the winter sun gleams on the exposed mud and birds fly off in search of feeding grounds.
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.
