Aidan Kirkpatrick

2 Dec

I have recently been travelling to Loddon, outside Norwich to assist an artist called Aidan Kirkpatrick at his printmaking studio.  Aidan is an 82 year artist and ex-art teacher and has been doing etchings for a number of years.  He is what I would call a very traditional printer, working from his own drawings to make copper etchings that he then prints with oil based inks and chalk.  I have been learning his technique and helping him to complete an order of his work.  It has been so interesting to discuss art with someone so well travelled and experienced and I hope to pass on what I have learnt to others.

Here is a link to some of Aidan’s work: http://www.eastangliangroupofmarineartists.org.uk/EAGMA%20Gallery%208.htm
