Block Print: Flour bin in a mill near Granthem

£0.00£100.00

This is one that came from the Lincolnshire sketch book of a few years ago. I did a series of water colour sketches, with pen and ink, of the inner workings of an old flour mill. This was one of them, and I chose this as a first attempt at a print as it was probably the easiest composition,

I haven’t done any block printing for years and had been keen for some time to try it again. The catalyst was seeing a new style press for sale, which I duly bought, along it a new supply of inks and cutters and other items needed to make a start.

Block Print: Flour Bin in a mill near Grantham (reduction block print, circa A4) (Unframed)

This is one that came from the Lincolnshire sketch book of a few years ago. I did a series of water colour sketches, with pen and ink, of the inner workings of an old flour mill. This was one of them, and I chose this as a first attempt at a print as it was probably the easiest composition,

I haven’t done any block printing for years and had been keen for some time to try it again. The catalyst was seeing a new style press for sale, which I duly bought, along it a new supply of inks and cutters and other items needed to make a start.

The mistake I made was not buying specialist printing paper, so on this first print the paper is too coarse. But I have now purchased a finer quality paper so am now ready to try another one
