Project Minimal: Fourth page

More photos of the breakwater in Newcastle show not only huge rocks in place but also concrete blocks, which I can only imagine were installed by cranes using the handles clearly visible.

Finished print:

300gsm Hahnemuhle warm white paper, oil-based printing ink

Abstracting elements from photos and drawings, which result in prints that bear little or no resemblance or connection to the original, is a new way of working for me and proving very satisfying. The idea that a simple photograph can be the start point and be adapted into something unrelated brings a new freedom to my printmaking – which is demonstrated well in this project.
