The triptych was inspired by the iconic tree-capped hill on the Symondsbury Estate near Bridport, Dorset. Colmer’s Hill stands in the distance amidst the ancient Dorset landscape, framed by twisted thorn trees. I chose the triptych format to lend emphasis to the central point of the image and also to create a greater sense of space.
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.
