With this piece I tried something completely new to me. I've often created woodland compositions but this was the first with reflections. There was a satisfying symmetry in the flooded forest idea that I was keen to represent - it required careful planning! I deliberately emphasized the abstract qualities of the dark bars of the tree trunks against the light. Flashes of colour indicate refracted light bouncing off the water. The thinner branches were drawn strongly using the transfer monotype technique. I hope to return to this theme and develop it some more.
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.
This original is shown here unmounted and unframed. Please get in touch to order it mounted and/or framed in oak. The messy edges you can see on some of the photos will be covered by the mount.
