After working on reduction cuts earlier this year, I thought it would be advantageous for me to enroll onto a 2 day reduction cut workshop held by Wendy Willis at Oxbow Press.
The reduction cut technique is one that I have not heard of before, so I am very interested in the process and what there is to be learned from this technique.
I have been looking at different images that might be suitable for the process, but not having experienced it, it was difficult to choose what would be best. I looked at expanding the story of Lady Penelope, but I think her stories are best narrated in intaglio rather than relief.
I have settled on a peacock image, mostly because the greens of a peacock tail are probably my favourite colour. It is also refreshing to make an image that I am not emotionally connected with to any great extent.
