It has been a challege photographing this with the awful lighting, but the edition from the large plate is too big to scan.

This will definitly be displayed in my degree show along with another large plate that I am currently working on and one of the smaller prints.

Amy has presented her residency work to the fine Art students on our level 3 BTECs year one and two, and discussed her influences, ideas and concepts, and showing examples of development work.  The students were able to see how the work progressed and enjoyed this insight, and were able to ask questions.

Ralph has been working with our BTEC first and second years.  He lead his own workshops and supported Steve the fine art tutor in workshops also.  Ralph has made good contributions to  developing printmaking with us and so it has been of great benefit to have him here in residency.

Aluminium plate lithography

Some process shots for a 35x25inch plate lithograph I have just finished drawing up. It is another composite monster, consisting of squid tentacles, coral and goose wings.

I’m 3 weeks away from my degree show now and I’m going to try and get at least this plate and 2 more stones done to make it up to 6 prints that will possibly be displayed.
