‘Whitchurch Down after Widgery’
Limited edition lino print on Somerset Satin 250gsm paper
Image size: H 30cm x W 42cm
Paper size: H 38cm x W 56cm
This print was inspired by ‘Whitchurch Down’ a Dartmoor watercolour by the 19th century Devon artist Francis Widgery. I have added the windswept tree and birds. In the distance Brentor looms above the moor.
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.
