OIL PAINTING, PRINTMAKING
Changing moods and patterns of landscapes in oils and ink. Relief and intaglio print making exploring human themes and forms.
The Paddocks, Chestnut Lane, Barton in Fabis, Nottingham NG11 0AE
I am an environmental scientist and geographer, turned artist. As a result, I am especially interested in landscapes. Especially the everyday rural landscapes that surround us, rather than the spectacular and iconic, because these need valuing too. I paint mostly in oils and like to revisit the same places at different times and seasons to see the changes and think about how to capture them. The landscapes of the Trent Valley are a particular focus. I also stray into cities, because urban landscapes, and especially the people in them, make good subjects for print making. I am a member of the Nottingham Society of Artists.

ROY YOUNG – WORK
The work shown here covers a range of subject matter. The rural landscapes are oils from my Trent Valley series; I am interested in an area likely to be impacted by gravel extraction and a long-term project is to record its transformation. However, I also enjoy painting cityscapes. The prints are made using dry point and collagraph methods and illustrate my interest in figure drawing. Recently I have also made prints using lithographic methods.
If you are interested in this work, please contact the artist directly through the links above.

This video shows the process I use to make a lithographic print in my studio. I have manipulated and combined two of my pen and ink drawings in photoshop which I then printed on a polyester litho sheet using a laser printer. I can then ink up the sheet to make prints.
