Limestone Pavement, Lough Mask. A new plate

April 26, 2017

March 5, 2016

Introducing ‘Ivy’ the 2016 #Twitterartexhibit ….alongside the 2014 and 2015 submissions. I like the challenge of a ‘postcard’ sized print – normally working on a large scale, and with the class of image I’m drawn to it’s difficult to avoid going twee when you go small! The other good part is small plates are so beautifully easy […]
