This is my latest multicolour lino cut print. You have no idea how I have fretted over it, but I really wanted to do it. The inspiration for this print came from Eric's charming photograph of a children's entertainer at a village fête. Do follow the link and check it out. I was intrigued by the differences in scale - the long chap beside the tiny child. As you can see my version fails to elongate the legs of the man quite enough. I have also turned him into a clown - he looked rather unhappy so I decided he had to have a painted smile. I've different colour versions of this subject, no two prints are exactly the same and on this particular version I admit to resorting to using a paintbrush to touch up some of the details. I was printing on thick watercolour paper here as an experiment and in places the colour didn't take too well, so technically this is a bad print. However, I do like the warmer colours of this particular example. Many thanks to Pat who has put up with my whinging and whining as I was working through this. Many thanks also to Eric for providing his photograph files for me to study and make sketches from. This was a difficult exercise for me but I think I have learned a lot. An afterthought: Thank you all so much for comments on this work. I am intrigued by Rachael's interpretation of the 'creepy clown' and she is not the first to have made this observation. I remember pondering over the entertainer's unhappy countenance when looking at the original photograph and as a result I think I have introduced creepiness into this image... interesting.
