Pastures New!

Spent a brilliant weekend at Edinburgh Printmakers recently, learning Stone Lithography with Alastair Clark. Have always wanted to try this technique as it is supposed to be a very responsive medium - and so it is.

The stone in question is limestone - my favourite rock - so it was bound to be 'sympatico' as far as I was concerned!

This was the first image from my first drawing on the stone - a view of the Cuillin from Sligachan, Isle of Skye.

Some more work on the stone, including some tuche washes which needed to dry overnight.

Some more drawing and adjusting on Sunday and this was the second state of the image.

I'm off to Edinburgh again next week to spend some time in the studio, adjusting the image again and making a new stone. Can't wait!
