The Magnificence of Midsummer
This is the 3rd and final print in my lockdown series and it is also the largest (and most detailed! ) measuring 46cm x 36cm. It tells the story of midsummer in my garden when the foxgloves were flourishing, the geraniums were strong and steady and the zinnias were startling. I was busy in the studio, taking regular tea breaks - I'm the big eared character in all of my prints. The sheep in the field next door were providing entertainment and Marple was sunning herself amongst the flowers.
I always start with drawing from observation and then return to the studio to work on the drawing - I've included the drawing in the pictures so you can see part of my process.
This print is a rich plum colour and printed on Japanese paper. I feel transparency and fragility suits the subject perfectly. I do hope you like it.
I print everything from my studio using a small wooden hand press and my etching press. The finished result is unique and original with no two prints being alike.
