Performance Figures … Circus & Dance Etchings

Some of my prints are currently exhibited at the Hay Makers Gallery, St. John’s Place, Hay,  until 16th November. See
The  Gallery, in the centre of Hay on Wye, is a real treasure trove full of varied and beautiful original art and craft work.

I have put in the work shown here and other prints which can be seen under ‘etchings.’ Mainly they are from my circus series supplemented with other work that will hang well together.
I have also been working on an artists digital book using the prints as illustrations but have to experiment further with different papers before I am satisfied with the design.

Between other projects such as Encyclopedia Britannica shown in my last post I continue to work on circus and dance drawings. It is to drawing from life and the moving figure that I constantly return as I am mesmerised by the skill and beauty of the performers. Ideas for further prints are not yet resolved but I remain optimistic that some designs worth pursuing will soon emerge from the endless pile of quick watercolour sketches.
