Overprints and accidents

For the fans of the ‘accident and overprint’ coupled with the totally unintentional here’s another heavily layered and overprinted image for you to enjoy. As far as I can remember there are fourteen or fifteen overprints on this solo preparation proof, there could be more but I can neither tell nor remember clearly. The image looks a little bit like nuclear armageddon with the strangely pruned Bramley apple tree resembling a mushroom cloud over the Fenland landscape and the two old Fenmen sitting by a fire drinking their cider oblivious to the holocaust that’s approaching. It’s all interpretation and I’m sure everyone has a different one. Now it’s back to working on the Jack Russell woodcuts and after this one there’ll only be one left to do. Perhaps.
