It's the end of the day, the rain has stopped, and a Kestrel comes out to hunt as the last of the sun reflects on what is left of the rain clouds. While exploring the Quantock Hills on a winter day, we ended up in a car park up on one of the ridges in the pouring rain. The rough roads were soaking wet, and a single small Hawthorn tree stood making its shapes against the sky. It was beautiful as it was, but I couldn't help imagining how it would be if the rain stopped and the late afternoon light was allowed to break free. It's all about the sky, the light through the clouds and the changing quality of that light as you move upwards. The sky itself is a reduction linocut print that uses an extender to create transparent layers of ink, which allow the luminosity of the paper and each previous colour to shine through. The foreground is a multiblock print which,  allowed me to play with the give and take off the layer's opacity and colour before committing to the edition. The inks used are Caligo Safewash relief inks, and the paper is Fabriano Unica printmaking paper.
