Original Prints - Sub-Series

In the spring of 1996, whilst working away at Lowick House Print Workshop for a couple of weeks, I was trying, unsuccessfully, to print a flat green as a first colour for a lithograph of a hillside with two trees. As is often the case with printmaking and all its tricky processes, it wasn't going how I'd hoped. I couldn't get the ink to print as I wanted - I was doing something wrong.

 In frustration I went for a long walk over the nearby fells. Just before getting back to the workshop it occurred to me that, with this image, I wasn't particularly interested in the ground below the line of the hill . . . and Couple (i) (see foot of this page) and a great many more similar lithographs were born!
