Roundhay Park is a jewel of municipal greenery on the eastern edge of Leeds. The bandstand and surrounding mature woodland make for a beautiful scene. This was especially the case this autumn, when a prolonged period of fair weather meant the trees retained their leaves far longer than usual. The leaves turned a beautiful combination of russet tones in the surprisingly warm sunshine.
The print is made up of 5 colours. I am a particular fan of the blue/green of the foreground. Almost a raw cyan, the ink I used reacts differently dependent on wether it has the yellow ink beneath it. Where the yellow is present the blue has turned a beautiful green. Where there is no yellow, and only the naked paper is present the true vivid blue is presented to the left of the bandstand.
