sorry for lack of posts just recently ! Have had to get head down and get on with work  for the Christmas rush (hopefully) at the galleries ! I'm now working on three for the Mandells gallery in Elm Hill ,Norwich as part of the East Anglian Group of Maritime Artists Christmas Show...then straight on to work for the Cork Brick Gallery in Bungay. It is the first time I have shown in both galleries so a little bit of a worry !!! Promise to post photos soon..

experimenting with presentation!

 I've been having a bit of a play around with my mini drypoints....felt I needed to make them more unique and special ! I have been looking at varnishing them to bring out the depth in the watercolour and also trimming the print so that no border remains. I have heard of prints being waxed...need to research this!
I'm getting slightly obsessed with floating mounts and tried this too and I think Im getting there!!!
