The sunset sky for this summer landscape turned out well with lovely soft pink and blue contrasts and a real sense of light. I agonised over whether to do my printed patterns and textures in the foreground but opted for some relaxed mark-making that indicates a more distant view
I used rollers and dabbers to spread out the ink then made marks with a cloth and other tools. I built up layers of over-lapping colous by printing serveral times. I incorporated textures by impressing inked up wallpaper and fabric. I also used paper stencils to make the crisp edges.
