Lithography is done by drawing on stone and then printing.

These images are all lithographs and I print up to 10 prints from the stone.
These paintings are from a series of seagulls and terns that I see on the beach. I love the shapes that they make, the monochromatic palette and contrast against the backdrop of the sea and the sky. The top three are all painted on plywood.
