Walthamstow Wetlands

Subs and I went to Walthamstow Wetlands today, it’s a conservation area with reservoirs and all kinds of birds and wildlife as well as an old, refurbished engine house where you can get a lovely lunch.

I am going to try to make some lino prints from these, using details and trying to make my images look more illustrative than literal. I find that difficult.  The details I want to keep are the birds, the pub from the back, the water, the water towers, the clouds, the banks of yarrow and the engine house.

Update:  I never did make any prints from this walk, I guess it just wasn’t memorable enough.  I am now doing prints of my local area, it’s 19th century shops.
