Bookplates in progress

While we’re on the subject of bookplates (see my last post) here are the first of several I’m currently developing. These examples incorporate three small paintings I made in the early stages of lockdown.

I’ve always had a fascination for bookplates, and am about to begin one using the more traditional medium of linocut.

These digitally produced bookplates are essentially limbering-up exercises. They are still in the experimental stages, but I’m finding them quite soothing to work on, a welcome contrast to far more laborious, time-consuming projects, including the painting I’m currently working on, a triptych that’s likely to take a considerable time to resolve.
