During the enforced stay at home we have had a long spell of amazingly sunny days, ideal for creating cyanotypes. I have posted a few on this website over the last year but this has been a great opportunity to spend time taking advantage of the bright sun and free time trying out different materials.

Cyanotypes look best when viewed as prints, especially those on art paper or fabric, but they also look great on screen; it’s something about the deep blue colour! A few have other colours; this is staining picked up from the flowers and berries pressed against the printing paper. These original cyanotypes are one-of-a-kind prints; they can’t be duplicated as prints.

I’ve collected my recent, prints into a gallery; have a look!
