This print was started earlier in the year and has been hanging around my workshop for what feels like a long time. It is quite a simple, unfussy print. The colours seem really clean and have an almost black and white quality that I like. I am really pleased with the snow and I deliberately held back with details knowing that the snow overlaid at the end would be one of the main attributes of the piece.
The inks that I use are Intaglio printmakers relief inks. The sky has a hue that I know I will be using again - bronze dark blue / paynes grey/ white.

This is the completed print. This actual print is an artist's proof and has now sold. For the edition I will work predominantly with these colours but add some lighter tones to the dark greens.
Pleased with this method which combines an engraving key block with layers of monotype. It will be difficult to recreate the image in an edition but I will document colours carefully.
