On 5th of May I had a wonderful day in the Tulips for Tapping field in Norfolk - I took my sketchbooks - the big one was hard to handle in the wind but I still managed to do a few sketches. I always like to work from a sketch because it gives me much more information than a photograph. Your eye sees things differently to a camera lens. Back in the studio I chose one of my sketches to develop and translate into a linocut .
Below is a selection of the colours/layers I put onto the lino.
It is for sale in my shop its a small edition of 12
The first of the edition I have donated to Tapping House Hospice. 10% of sales from the edition will also be donated to Tapping.
