Cobden statue prints

Just added a coat of acrylic varnish to my recent Gelli / matte medium transfer prints. The varnish covers any traces of paper not previously removed from the print.

The prints above depict the Richard Cobden statue on Petersgate.

Cobden was a free trade pioneer and became MP for Stockport in 1841. He lead the anti-Corn law campaign within Parliament.

The 16ft statue which has been in situ since the 1880’s was moved to a new location due to redevelopment of the square.

Tiviot Dale print

Here is my latest etching aquatint print of ‘Tiviot Dale Railway’ that I created yesterday from sketches and reference photos depicting the once active railway line and station. If you look closely, the print shows what has become of the area with a motorway and the new shopping development of Redrock. This print completes a set of three prints showing Stockport’s past.
