Stone linoprints

Having been drawing miniature stones for some time I felt the need to experiment with different techniques to see how different processes might reveal a different aspect of stones, or rather of my interpretation of stones.


As I frequently experiment with printmaking it was a natural extension of my drawing practice to use this for stone drawings.


The use of lino cuts is interesting as it requires a different approach to line drawing; the tools are held differently, the pressure needed to make marks is different and the inking and printing leads to a different quality of work.


With the miniature stone drawings I had been drawing each stone four times, turning the stone between each rendition. With the prints I experimented with rotating the image and overlaying it on previous prints to capture the three dimensions of a stone.
