Nice work, but I would like to know more about it. What medium have you used and what type of support is it on? Such a lovely composition and wonderful colors!

Stunning - 6 lovely illus in one!
Glorious textures and use of colour.

Hello Shani!
In reply to your post - my art usually involves several steps – first I do a few rough sketches in pencil and work out a composition. This part can take a while as I can daydream and get a bit overwhelmed by the different possibilities! Then I work out which elements of the image will be hand done and which part can be done in photoshop. It’s a matter of cutting the lino and printing it, scanning the prints and then putting the finishing touches on in Photoshop, changing the composition and trying out different colour combinations.
I guess some people might prefer that printmakers work entirely traditionally, personally I enjoy the freedom and seemingly limitless possibilities that working with technology has afforded me.
I hope that answers your question :)
Cheers!
Sandra
