ABSTRACTION OF THE CORNISH COASTLINE

After a trip to St. Ives and spending a lot of time in the print room, I became interested in creating a collagraph inspired from my images taken in Cornwall.

I experimented with different fabrics and textured wallpapers to see their different effects that could be created. From there I used different colours and shapes to create an abstraction.
