I have been walking alot through woodlands lately, enjoying the amazing light filtering through the trees and the warm copper hues of the fallen leaves. A couple of times I have spotted deer running startled by the dogs. I love them, they are magical creatures and have inspired me to draw and paint this scene of the stag in a magical woodland. I hope you enjoy it. Have a great weekend. 🙂
These prints were very simple to produce. I used a foam material like ain apizza base to cut the design of the Chinese lanterns
Next you draw your design into the foam using a biro or pencil. Mix your coloured ink and roll on to your plate thinly. Put cartridge paper over the plate then with your print roller, roll up and down.Lift your paper gently off your printing plate and your image appears printed! Great fun, easy and can be done with children.
Hopefully here’s the link to my Brown hare cottage wp site where you can see my ‘Fox in a wood on a wintry night’ linocut print.
This watercolour sketch of a toadstool from the Agaric family , I found in an old sketchbook. It’s at least 10 year’s old but surprisingly it has held its vibrant autumnal colours.
