It’s the end of the day, the rain has stopped and a Kestrel comes out to hunt as the last of the sun reflects on what is left of the rain clouds. While exploring the Quantock Hills on a winter’s day we found ourselves in a car park up on one of the ridges in the pouring rain. The rough roads were soaking wet and a single small Hawthorn tree stood making it’s shapes against the sky. It was beautiful as it was but I couldn’t help imagining how it would be if the rain stopped and the late afternoon light was allowed to break free. ‘After The Rain’ was selected for and exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition 2021. The inks used for this print are Caligo Safe Wash inks which are water soluble oil based ink with high lightfast properties. The paper is Daler-Rowney Canford Ice White paper 150gsm. These prints are all handmade and as such there can be slight variations in the prints in an edition, though these are slight. It means that each print in an edition is unique and is an original in it’s own right.
