This is the first of my views not to include any engraving, being entirely created using monoprint and linocut. It is only an artist's proof, but it fairly close to how the edition will be printed. I am going to change the road (roadworks) and create a shadow in the foreground cast by the trees under an orange streetlight. I have taken a long time to complete this one, having first visited the mosque almost a year ago. I do have another daytime view of the mosque that I started before this one. I'm struggling to resolve elements of it though. My thanks to Hateeb, at the mosque who showed me round and I'm hoping that I will soon have a daytime print to go with this view.
