Sketch of the Barbican Gate, Lewes. Ink, 21 x 15cm.
This print is of the Round House in Lewes.
Three plate linocut, 10 x 10 cm.
The Round House was the base of a windmill built in 1801, and then turned into a house somewhere around 1900. In 1919, Virginia Woolf bought it, but never lived there, preferring to move to Monk’s House at Rodmell instead.
And another print of Lewes. Like the previous one, it’s a view from Cliffe Bridge; this time looking in the other direction, south, past the old warehouses, towards the Linklater Pavilion.
Three plate linocut, 10 x 10cm. Edition of 5.
Struggling a bit here with the multiple plate technique, which I’ve not done much of before. Working on such a small scale makes any errors much more visible. You can see the black layer overlaps at the left edge — if this was a 50cm square, that would be hardly noticeable, but on a 10cm square it stands out. Need to cut the blocks much more accurately, and sort out the registration method.
