I’ve just come back from an Easter week down in Wiltshire and Surrey with my family. Before I left I spent the day on back grounds for lino prints, knowing that they would have a full week to dry, and that I could leave my studio in this much chaos!
Every surface was covered and the house smelt of white spirit and linseed oil which I liked, but Daniel and Hattie didn’t.
A week later I have come back to put the next layer on. The bird cages:
More fun when these layers have dried. I wish I had more space, or at least a proper drying rack. It’s nice to find a legitimate use for small, ladybird clothes pegs though.
