poppyA print from 30 years ago recently turned up and is appropriate to this time of remembrance.

Now I’m doing  print of the Tower of London with poppies in the moat. Did the drawing back in January and its taken me 10 months to get round to cutting the lino. Here’s the first block.

In the summer I designed a card for the poppy cut in the chalk hill at Fovant, Wilts.IMG_20190625_0001 (2)poppy

Tree

I’ve designed and printed an Oak tree which has two versions, one with spring leaves and a second with autumn foliage. The text is about oaks in general, or some with the song “Hearts of Oak”.

Sycamores continue the theme of magnificent English Trees.

I am at present printing the English version of  The Ash Grove. This compliments the Welsh card which I did earlier. This time a second colour – yellow – has been added to the leaves.

I have just sent off my contribution to the British Printing Society. This is a pattern of ink blots, known as the Roaschach ink blot test.
