This is the 2nd print in my lockdown series and it tells the story of the second and third week when the tulips were still flowering and the nettles were starting to overtake the garden. To soothe my agitated mind I took to mowing the lawn in a frenetic way whilst also finding solace in watching the garden birds, particularly the plump starling. Marple as always took it all in her stride and snoozed her way through it all.

I always start with drawing from observation and then return to the studio to work on the drawing - I've included the drawing in the pictures so you can see part of my process.

This print is dark green and printed on Japanese paper. I feel transparency and fragility suits the subject perfectly and it is very dark blue in colour. I do hope you like it.

I print everything from my studio using a small wooden hand press and my etching press. The finished result is unique and original with no two prints being alike.

My name is Sam,  I'm a printmaker working from my studio in rural Northamptonshire. I've recently left London after 22 years and am now enjoying the fresh air, open skies and wildlife of my new life in the country. Miss Marple my ever faithful mini dachshund loves it too! 

When I'm not making work/ running workshops / coaching from my studio then I'm travelling around the UK and Europe with my sketchbook.
