    ‘Winter on the Levels’

    This print was inspired by many a winter walk in the Somerset Levels, particularly Shapwick Heath and Ham Wall from where Glastonbury Tor can be seen distantly across the water.

    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.
