West Bay

Have been having another go at white-line printmaking. This is a small port on the Dorset Coast called West Bay. There is still a fishing fleet there, and I hope to be creating more images from the area.

Am finding it all hard going at the moment, probably the usual autumn blues as I wonder why I am not living in a place with no winter. The printmaking challenge helps to keep me going. Hope all well out there!

Autumn efforts

Had a stand at an arts & crafts show at the George Albert Hotel, very quiet but as always interesting to have people's comments. Felt a bit down afterwards as sales were low even though I had slashed the prices.
So back to the studio. This is a white line print Mont St. Victoire. I find it impossible to make consecutive prints identical using the white line technique,as one is basically painting them on to the wood, with varying results. I have currently started numbering them as A/P1 + date A/P2+date etc. Does anyone have some better ideas?
