The Traveller 

Linocut 

The landscape is of the Valley of Rocks, North Devon, and the figure comes from William Blake’s illustration ‘The Traveller hasteth in the evening’.  I have often thought of this while making my way through the Valley of Rocks to Lee Abbey.

This is a linocut printed from four blocks: the first three printed in transparent yellow, red and blue, and a final key block printed over in dark blue.
