A few prints

I did a list of things to do before heading overseas for a holiday at the end of November - maybe I should not have done that as it was a fairly extensive list - well it is a great motivator. It made me get stuck into printing for the Maleny Printmakers exhibition on 8-10 November.

I have made my 10 plates but now it is time to do my editioning - 10-12 copies (prints) of 10 prints.

I have started a series called Urban Elements - rusted metal and peeling layers of paint - I like where that series is going.

I have printed a couple of the aluminium plates that I did as part of the copper sulphate etching day.

And I printed my lino cut bowl that I did when we were on Heron Island.

Including a lino cut of a boat, I have now done 6 of my 10 editions - so feeling pretty happy about that given I have about 4 weeks to go.


  1. Lovely work, Barry! The first and the last image are my favourites.

  2. I love them all, but the urban elements are whispering to me. Congratulations!

  3. amazing Barry
    each one is a joy to see
    you have SO many talents!

  4. I'm with Robyn, first and last are my favorites. I've been wishing for an etching press of late...

  5. I really like the strong structural look of the Urban Elements prints Barry, and the colour, which is unusual from someone like me who usually goes for B&W.

  6. Well, who'd've thunk it? Barry, you are a multi-talented, multi-tasking SNAG.

  7. R, J, TL, VA, HM & JM - thanks for your supportive comments - it says to me that I might sell a couple at the exhibition - all prints $25 will also help. R - quite different pieces but the tones etc seem to suit them. J - as a fellow 'rust luster' I can imagine Urban Elements whispering to you. TL & JM - not sure it is one of my talents but always pleased when they work out. VA - the press does make a different so I can imagine the wish. HM - thanks - glad you got the structural look and that it appealed. All go well. B

  8. Yes, beautiful prints, I love those compositions, good work!

  9. Yep, first and last my favourites, too. The colours of Urban Elements are stunning. You're going great guns, B, looking great!
