This print was inspired by an early evening on Holy Island, Northumberland. Lindisfarne castle sits silhouetted against the evening sky as a flock of starlings swoop homeward across a meadow. The perfect end to a day spent walking from the mainland across the mud and sand whilst dunlin foraged for food around my feet and seals called from the strandline.
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
