The poppies infront of Warkworth castle is a real view here in Northumberland. I enjoyed the challenge of interpreting this subject using the marks and patterns of the monotype medium.
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. You can watch a video of this artwork being made.
Framed in oak. Please get in touch to discuss delivery/collection options.
