Adding a shimmer of gold and silver embellishment to my A3 Koi Print.
Sketching can be for practice, but also a bridge to keep on going from one idea to the next.
This print was taken recently from my exhibition at The Vault in Nailsworth. It is rather strange and fortunate that although I had hung the original painting which I am very fond of in the exhibition I then changed my mind and switched it for the print. There is only one print of this painting. So if you see this anywhere other than in my possession it is the one that has been stolen. It is sad isn’t it that this should have happened..?
Sometimes, or maybe even often, I produce pieces of work and dismiss them. I don’t mean to, I do not think hard about this at all, it just happens. These pieces surface at times, perhaps when an exhibition is about to begin and I start gathering things together.
My “Stepping Crane” is such a piece, having been exhibited at the Amberley Inn on our “Fish and Ships” PV night and I am pleased to say it is shortly on its’ way to a new home.
