Sepia version of my etching of the air raid shelter in Stockport.
This week I have been preparing my artwork for a number of local exhibtions. First up was the 2017 Macclesfield Open based at the Silk Museum, which I submitted two etching prints with a coastal theme. One of the prints depicts the isle of Arran and the other is of horse-riders galloping on a beach.
The second exhibition I submitted work was for the 97th annual Stockport Art Guild exhibition. As I am a member, I couldn’t miss this chance to enter four of my prints ranging from a linocut to a new etching depicting the artist L.S. Lowry.
I will also be selling some xmas cards at The Boo Arts & Crafts Market between 25th-26th November. This year I have some new cards and even fridge magnets for sale base on my Lyme Park etching.
On Sunday, I had a busy day printing an edition of my new etching entitled “Stockport Exchange” taken from a pen sketch created earlier this year.
I am also working on another etching this time as a mix between a Mezzotint and an etching. There is quite alot of burnishing to carry out on this one.
I will give an update in my next blog post in December. Bye for now!
