Cornish Colours...


During my holiday in Cornwall I managed to do a little bit of printing in my caravan when there was a rainy day.
I'm trying out some mono printing techniques for my Hope And Elvis workshops that are coming up.
I really enjoyed it, rain tapping on the roof, cups of tea and 'Murder She Wrote' on the telly.
I noticed that the muted Cornish palette had crept in.
It's funny how your work can change, maybe my holiday mood played a part too.

  2. Wish I lived on your side of the world so I could come to your workshops. I'm content in reading about them. Love the colours you have used for these.

  3. What a beautiful piece! It definitely has the lovely sea green of Cornwall. This print would make a nice fabric.

Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
