Back to school.

These last few weeks have been amazing.  My travels to Cornwall were so inspirational and I am now translating some of the rock drawings into monoprints and etchings.   It is wonderful to be back in the print room.

I also got accepted into the Pushing Print exhibition in Margate and had to deliver my prints and then return the following weekend for the Private View. My good friend,  Jim, lives nearby, so not only did I get to see him, and deliver my work, but also spent time on Botany bay beach, which I love.   This time I paid attention to the tide times and enjoyed the high tide with the water lapping around the rocks which I normally walk amongst.  I posted a little video here.  I also walked all the way along to the arch at low tide which is near Broadstairs.  I hope you enjoy some of my photographs, including a few from the Pushing Print Festival.

Wow, you are one busy person - as always. Congratulations on the show. Beautiful drawings and photographs. I love the giant printing. The photo of you is gorgeous as well - with the wind in your hair - in your element.

Thanks Katherine, there does seem to be a lot going on doesn't there? Keeps me out of mischief! Just watching all those adults and children partaking in the giant print was wonderful. Everyone was so absorbed. Yes, I am in my element when outside sketching.

Life sounds really good for you, Lynne. I love the drawings in your sketchbook... especially the one covering the two pages. I tried the video but alas it was not available, but I did enjoy the photos.
the large monoprints looked fun. it was a kick seeing a roller that large!!!!
Are you painting at all or are you more into the drawing and printmaking?

Lynne E. Windsor said...

Good to hear from you Julie. I have really enjoyed getting back to lots of drawing since I have been on my course. I don't know why the video didn't work.. maybe it's a UK/US thing, although it's a link to my public Lynne Windsor Painter and Printmaker Facebook page which is universal. It works when I click on it. Just try googling the Facebook page. I am painting mainly at weekends and in the holidays. I painted all summer in NM. I hope you are well.
