fog descends


lithograph, 56 x 36 cm

A pair of colour proofs/variations for a new lithograph (each version is printed in 2 colours from 2 aluminium plates on grey B.F.K., the sky/fog is hand-coloured with pastel & gouache). I like the atmosphere created when the prints are side by side, hinting at the constantly, often quickly changing mountain weather. In the Pyrenees I remember subtle shifts, then suddenly a fog so thick I could see only as far as the nearest cairn, in a vast landscape space seemed to contract. Fog can wrap you in stillness, soften sound, suspend time.
