Book Examples MYSTERY
Steve Robson It was 2010 that Stephen Robson joined Greenwich Printmakers. He aaended Goldsmith’s college and has a background in woking and teaching in photography. Hes ﬁrmly drawn to work from Samuel Palmer, Paul Nash and Edward Hopper. The Thames estuary,Suﬀolk and the coast of Norkfolk have been favorite subjects. The colours in Steve Robson work is very dull, it seems as they use diﬀerent colours of the same colour. The mood of these pictures are very depressing as they are not bright. Most of the colours are to dull. His work is from eching this is which I chose it because I am also doing the same thing to experiment with prinGng. He try's to make us focus on the horizon line which tends to be a third of the way through the page. Because there is only 2 to 3 colours I tend to focus on the white highlights. Robson work will ofen have a variety of art making.
Robson is inﬂuenced by the deep sky's in Hoppers work and black and white etching technique in Paul Nash and Samuel Palmer’s work.

Etching in the style of Steve Robson
Fabienne Rivory work
Fabienne Rivory, a French arGst, makes theres diﬀerent and amazing images by working with mirror photographs and watercolor paints. Rivory has been creaGng artwork that blends photography and paint since 2007, process she likens to the exploraGon of memory versus in real life The colours are less exciGng because the colour are limted. There are only 3 colours on most of the designs. The mood is very depressing because of the grey skies
the materials she uses are Photographs and ink colours or water colours. The techniques she used are over exposed contrasGng photos and mirror images. The drips in the pictures are leading lines that guide your eyes downwards. My eyes focus on the main colour of the picture and on the horizon line.
