Winter Seed

Many of my projects derive from plants; the striking shapes they make, especially against a background sky or landscape. My studies for this print series came from sketches and photos from my walks around Stourhead Gardens during the month of January. I created two Etching plates to work together, a Sugar Lift and Aquatint.

 I really enjoyed revisiting the plates to try out different print techniques, opening up the opportunity to experiment with mixed media, handmade paper, dried flowers, Intaglio and Relief Printing.
