Roses are Red

Ok it February 14th time for all those chubby little babies with bows and magic arrows to be out and about looking for the unaware, Valentines day were love is in the air. Me be being a nice guy decided to do a painting for my wife, so yesterday I shut myself in my studio to get on with it, my wife worked it out that I was doing some thing for her, I have never had so many cups of tea made and brought down to my studio on the pretence of trying to see her painting.
Got to love her for trying.

Happy Valentines Day

Sand Dunes print

Oh well I suppose that now I have started this I should put some thing up now and again, over the last week or so I have been doing a lot of large nude studies in acrylic washes they have been a lot of fun.

But today I got up and felt I would like to do something different so started in to do some printmaking,

I built the plait up with texture compound on matt board
Size 51/2 “x 61/2’
W/B ink, mixed Orange and mixed Brown
Hand burnishes for both colours
200g paper

I'm not unhappy with the proof print I think it has alot going for it.
