Over the festive season, I've been popping into my studio, when I can, to work on this new series. I'm about half-way through six monotypes that re-capitulate two of my favourite themes: patchwork landscapes and grasses with seed heads. This video shows, briefly, the making of the seed heads piece at the top. You can see how the layers of colour are built up then over-printed with a stencil and transfer drawing. So why have I returned to this subject matter now, you may ask?
