have been busy today getting work ready for Southwold gallery. It has been a real battle of wills as the weather has been so glorious and being outside was a constant temptation ! Also I really want to make some new blocks but have deadlines to meet ! The Blythburgh hares image took a long time to get right and involved more and more washes to get the texture of the hares just how I wanted them. Images like this make me wonder....has this become a mixed media piece rather than a collagraph with hand colouring ? If so should it still have an edition number ? Hey ho ! Another day tomorrow!



PS I did allow myself a long walk with the chocolate companion ! The woods around our local common are just too hard to resist !

  1. Stunning work, as always, Mandy, I'm always blown away by your art.

    So glad you managed to get some time out in this glorious weather with your chocolate companion too :)

  2. Are the bluebells out?

    Beautiful image - I love the landscape behind the hares and around the church - you've caught the subtle colours and textures perfectly.

  4. Hi Mandy, it's so difficult being stuck indoors when we've had such beautiful weather ! The Hares are beautiful, really love those beautiful muted browns against the blue. : )
