Landscape patterns: 2

26 February 2010

Here's another linocut that I have been working on that uses both the patterns of the landscape, and the effect of using multiple images in the same print. The images here are all views from Firle Beacon.

Four colour reduction linocut, 16 x 16cm.

I like the effect of the multiple images, and some of the shapes have been simplified towards that point where you can't quite tell if it's a landscape. But the colours (blue sky above green grass) give the game away. And I've ended up with four colours, which is too many for what I am trying to do...

South Downs: 2

14 February 2010

I've done some more work on the three landscape paintings that I started the other day.

This one's got more definition, but it still needs more.

This one has more definition too, and there is a sense of distance emerging.

This one's still loose in the foreground, but oops, those cliffs are already too realistic. I don't want this to end up like every other picture of the Seven Sisters.
