Printmaking Workshop with Linda Davies

These are the results of another great printmaking workshop with @lindadavies_ . Hugely enjoyable as always, and learnt loads! They are another attempt at reworking the original life drawing that was used as the basis for the painting, ‘The Space Between Us’ that was submitted to the AAAC exhibition.
