Trafalgar Square

Trafalgar Square

A super piece of work, Frank. Until I opened it I thought it was pen and ink, it sounds as if lino cutting is a new venture for you...what a marvelous result.

Thanks Lewis, the best thing about a new venture with a new medium is the excitement you get by pushing the boundaries and seeing what you can come up with.

Frank this is superb, I know how difficult it is to accomplish this amount of detail. It’s a wonderful print.

WOW! I thought this was an ink drawing. What fantastic detail. A stunning painting Frank.

Awesome work Frank superb

This project has been a big step up the steep learning curve of lino cutting and printing for me, which I find absolutely fascinating!
