These are a couple of pages from my book for the forthcoming exhibition. I am rediscovering the challenge and fun of creating images inspired by what I see.
A long time ago I did a lot of painting, finally mostly in watercolours, I have dug out my old watercolours and started playing around. Then I discovered the Derivan Artist Quality inks - these are wonderful as they dry with a semi gloss finish and can be worked over without disturbing the image.
There are also collage pieces happening and a more graphic approach. I did not want to try an be an illustrator, more I was fascinated with shape and texture. Hope you like these pages.
Quite a few more pages to complete then my concertina can be assembled. You can see them at the exhibition where I am in very good company with 14 other book artists.
