Cuckmere Valley, final stage

Final stage of this print, at last.

Cuckmere Valley, final stage

Seven-stage reduction linocut, 24 x 17cm. (Though now it's finished, I think, "Seven? Surely I could have done it in three?")

It wasn't until I'd started to print this image that I realised it makes a good pair with my "Across the Downs" print: This view is from High and Over, the highest point on the road between Seaford and Alfriston, looking north over the Cuckmere Valley towards Wilmington Hill. The earlier print shows the view looking west from Wilmington Hill, towards Firle Beacon. I wonder if I can get a view from Firle Beacon looking back to High and Over, to complete the circle.
