Friday Favourites

For as long as I can remember I have had an affinity for printmaking. I love the precision of the process, I love the understated elegance of the final piece of work.

The work has an economy of line and a subtle use of colour belying the complex skills and creative talents called into play to produce a work which looks in essence so simple.

I hope you have enjoyed these amazing works and this spurs you on to look at their websites as well as other print-maker’s works.

Have a glorious weekend.
