Getting On With It

12 Nov


I’m on the last leg now with “Here Be Dragons”, my commission for Sky Arts, getting my final design transferred into a large sheet of MDF. I’m back in my studio at home, with Helen Finney’s portrait of me looking down as I work.



I transferred it using detail paper, that had a tracing of the design in compressed charcoal. Once that was on the MDF, I went over each line with a good quality squirrel hair brush and home-made walnut ink. Tomorrow, the cutting begins!

      Thanks Gale. I love Helen’s painting, she really ‘got’ me. The block is huge, 80 X 120 cms, biggest i have done yet. Such a good thing to work through the process though.
