Into the Light was extremely complex to print with 10 layers of ink (I think, I’ve lost count!) The addition of the rushing stream was a completely new idea that really gave the piece a sense of direction and focus and brought back happy memories. As I once followed my mother and father along the path of a stream, my husband and I now take our own children to enjoy one of nature’s most delightful offerings. I’m really pleased with the finished results and think that it’s one of my best ever works.
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 colours by printing several times. I incorporated textures by impressing inked up wallpaper and fabric. I also used paper stencils to make the crisp edges. You can find out more about the creation of this piece in my "Woodland Light" article.
