colour etching

Here’s my first attaempt at a colour etching. Two plates used. nothing special but it came out better that I expected. Can only get better


Three weeks to go.

Just under three weeks to go to my son and my exhibition.



Just about finished framing my prints. If you are in Adelaide between 12th April and 3rd May 2015 drop in to the Prospect Gallery, Corner of Main North Road and Thomas Street, Nailsworth for a look.

Opening hours are Tuesday 10.15am -8.30pm, Wednesday – Friday 10.15am – 6.00pm, Saturday 9.oo – 4pm and Sunday 2pm- 5pm.

The exhibition is getting closer.

An exhibition of work by my son and I is getting closer. Exciting in one way, terrifying in another. Below are some of the prints and drawings of mine on the short list to be starters in the exhibition.

These are etchings and lino prints…

nd these are monoprints and drawings.

I’m really hoping I’m not going to embarras myself with all this. For anyone in Adelaide the exhibition will be at the Prospect Glalery from April 13th 2015.

Another go a drypoint using a perspex plate. Quite enjoying the process even if the arthritis in my fingers isn’t. Us artists are supposed to suffer for our art though –  aren’t we?


Plate size 12 x 19.5 cms

Tide out and drypoint.

Two new etchings done today to use up a couple of small plate offcuts left lying around.


This one is a first attempt at drypoint. Size 12.5 x 3.4 cms. Came out better than I expected but more practice at this needed.


This one is a hardground etching based on coastal area south of Adelaide. Size 12.5 x 4 cms. A second state needed with the tide in I think.

A little reminiscence.

Going through some of my older work today and found this. An etching I did in 1992 just after completeing an etching course here in Adelaide. It’s a scene from The Belair National Park which is a short drive south of Adelaide.


It is 5 cms x 10.5cms in size and was printed in an edition of six. Five are  available for purchase. Which you can do by clicking  HERE.
