I was trying to capture the sunlight glowing through the trees and casting shadows on the path.
I am growing more and more fond of painting the woodland pictures. I find it challenging and rewarding trying to capture the light and shadows in this setting.

Had lots of fun painting this little old lady for the first half of the post card. I handed the half finished card to Jason Port - another artist in our art group who then came up with the second half of the card.
Absolutely loved what he painted!

Experimenting with combining lino cut with drypoint etchings. I was really pleased with how these turned out.
I was even more pleased when I saw how much better they looked when my friend Graham framed all the prints up for me.

I have been experimenting with drypoint etching.
You prepare a metal plate for printmaking by scratching lines directly into the plate. The incised line or sunken area holds the ink.
This is a plate I made based on a photo of our three lovely Indian runner ducks.
I've been experimenting with the different marks I could make to get more shading in to the image.
