Art for Aldeburgh Festival 2012

I was asked to participate in a mixed exhibition at the Aldeburgh Gallery in Suffolk. This gave me the opportunity to try working with three colour etchings and monoprints. I’ve always enjoyed the possibilities offered in overlaying primary colours and using the effects of translucent inks. The monoprint images I finally selected were from a larger series of prints which explored ideas from sketch books and spontaneous drawings. The etching was done on three separate pieces of copper and I used hard ground and roulette wheels directly onto the bitten plates. For the monoprints I continued to use the soft etching inks and used both Canaletto and Sommerset Newsprint papers.
