Proofs and Puddings

I made the first proofs of all the prints I’ve cut in the studio/gallery. The Merry Maidens woodcut needs a bit more cutting, but only details now. I like it in black and white, but I might try printing it in colour and maybe with another plate to bring more of a layered image.mm woodcut

The Men an Tol print is on vinyl and the stones are cut in a section that’s separate from the flowers and figures – they fit together like a jig-saw. This is the first proof in black and white, but I’m intending to print it in at least two colours, inking each up separately.Men an T vinyl

This third proof is of a row of little figures I cut a couple of weeks ago that I’m planning to use as part of a mixed media print soon.little people

We’re not promising to open the studio/gallery again until the New Year – time to be creative with cooking now! We’ll also rehang our work to have a focus on our experience of the art of our prehistoric ancestors. We’ll announce dates soon. Make sure you’re signed up on our mailing list (www.martinstudios.co.uk on the home page) if you would like to be invited to Private Views when our new exhibitions open.
