100 Views of Birmingham
Metro Travelling Companions
This is the background for the 'fly under'. Created using lino, I still have one more layer of light to place on the pillars and ground.
The bottom part of the print is created as a monoprint, with the dark wiped away revealing the colours beneath.
This is the start of my print depicting a view underneath Gravelly Hill Interchange or Spaghetti Junction.
The print is called Flyover fly under because it depicts some house sparrows flying through in the bottom third of the image.
I have completed the first three layers with the mid grey blue of the structure created from a textured collagraph plate.
Thank you to Waterstones Birmingham Cafe for displaying my print of the Rotunda. The view is almost the view out of the window.
I'm hoping that each of the 100 views has a public place where it can be displayed close to the view depicted in the print.
