Mini watercolours, modern scrimshaw and prints showcase a series of miniature watercolours and imaginative landscapes and seascapes inspired by Brian’s travels around Australia. A creative approach using a wet-in-wet technique where colours and shapes merge and the use of rags as brushes maintains a broad treatment. The scrimshaw-style zinc plates series followed from a visit to Hawaii where engraved whale bones and teeth were on display at a gallery in Maui. The revelation of a link between printmaking and scrimshaw, where ink or lampblack is forced into the engraved lines and the surface is wiped clean, became the inspiration for this series of scrimshaw plates and prints.
