The week has been really busy – Haven’t forgotten about the Reflect.. series and completed Reflect on Red in several giclee versions. I also finished the salt sprinkled Red Poppies which you see here. This salt technique affected how subsequent ink and water soluble crayon ‘lay’ on the surface. I also produced around 6 giclee prints experimenting with different paper surfaces and I have just received an order for some Matt Archival thick paper which I am going to print straight onto to make my decorative tiles. This week I have made 10 decorative tiles sandwiching 3 card thicknesses together and using string, rafia or wool as hangers. I’ve got to perfect the edges yet but hey, I said I was busy!
By the way if you’re ever in Hornsea Freeport, East Yorkshire and fancy a look in Will’s Farm Kitchen, where I showed the manager my work yesterday, it’s fab. It sells local produce and local art work from cushions to cards. Worth a browse and the coffee’s good too.
