Leigh on sea artwork Work by a variety of ar1sts whose work we saw at leigh on sea where we visited to take photographs and experiment with pain1ng and using graphic pencils.
Stephen Robson joined Greenwich Printmakers in 2010. He went to goldsmith’s. college and has a background in teaching and working in photography. He is strongly drawn to the work of ar1sts such as Samuel Palmer, Edward Hopper and Paul Nash. The Thames estuary and the coast of Norfolk and Suﬀolk have been favourite subjects.
I have chosen these images as I like the dull and gloomy colours used. I also like the lack of details in the images, giving it more of a simple but eﬀec1ve look to it. The lack of colour makes it much more eﬀec1veness making it more gloomy.
Steve Robson uses etching and mono-‐prin1ng as a technique, and possibly water colour or prin1ng ink to add to the picture. In a lot of his images he has an object or a place that your eye is drawn to. In some examples the sea or sky are the eye catching bit.
Other Ar1st’s Paul Nash
Samuel Palmer You can see where Samuel Palmer has inﬂuenced robson’s work, because of the dark, gloomy feel, and lack of detail. The inﬂuence in hopper’s work is clear in the lack of detail, and large amount of emp1ness. The inﬂuence can be seen in Nash's work as what it is, is unclear, like robson’s work.
Diana CroV Diana Cro) is a painter and printmaker who specialises in making hand-‐produced collographs in small edi1ons. The prints are richly coloured and textured, oVen using layers of hand-‐made papers and gold and silver-‐leaf. Although given edi1on numbers, the prints all vary resul1ng in each one being a unique piece I like these images for the simplicity of the pictures. These images are fairly similar to the Leigh on sea pictures, except they are of the countryside instead. I like the style of using 1ssue paper to add colour. However I did not like using this technique, as it is quite ﬁddly, and hard to make look good. I also like the contrast between the dull colours and the bright colours. In her composi1on she uses scale to make you feel distance or feel close up to the subject. The scale makes you focus towards the front, because the colour is quite neutral.
