Printmaking brings out a completely different side to my artistic output. With rollers and brushes in hand I love to make gestural and instinctive marks. These monotypes are abstract but are also based loosely on two themes. The warm palette relates to an obsession with taking photographs of weather damage on boats and the cooler blue tones refer to research into traditional japanese architecture. I'll photograph some pages of the sketchbook to which the images relate soon and post them up.
