Snowhill vinylcut

Taking the same subject matter of the new building in the vicinity of Snowhill Station as l had attempted in an earlier acquatint, l attempted to tackle it in a vinylcut relief print and in varying colour ranges. Comments on strengths/weaknesses are welcome.

Reg Moon

l only met Reg Moon briefly toward the end of his life when l was invited to take some work along to show to he and his daughter Carey for possible inclusion in the winter show at The Gallery Upstairs, Henley. They were both friendly and generous in their time and feedback. l would like to include the link to the words that Carey wrote about her father and which were printed in The Guardian
