Andy Lovell Etching our Landscapes

April 18, 2023

I first spoke about the work of Andy Lovell back in 2010. His work pops up in my searches every now and again and I remember what fab illustrations he creates.

He is an artist, illustrator and printmaker who has become known for his abstract etchings, mono-prints and Cyanotype art.

Having originally studied at the Liverpool School of Art and Design, his work is well recognised and his individuality produces striking artwork.

Andy takes inspiration from life which is then revisited through the medium of print.

He is a master of line, colour and mark making.

Taking original sketches and paintings, Andy is able to capture a real sense of mood and place from the places he visits to sketch.

He knows how to add drama and interest to a landscape.

His landscapes speak of earth and furrowed fields. Forest and wildplants throw splashes of colour and shape, adding to the richness of each illustration.

I love these wild moor and lofty hill prints. The clever dragged lines of ink and paint not only help to suggest the landscape but also give a visual direction to each scene.

You can almost feel like you’re standing looking down these valleys.

The hills eventually lead us to the sea.

White cliffs and wild waters.

Tepid tones, swirling skies and seas.

These textured black and whites are wonderful, with a slight sixties retro edge to them.

Breathtaking textures.

You can discover more of his prints for sale here on his website.

    Superb work – and what I love about his style, is he doesn’t just draw exactly what he sees before him – he draws how the scene makes him feel.

    Absolutely love his work-I’ve bought a few of his greetings cards which I struggled to send!! Maybe one day I’ll buy a print of his. Also are those square whippets you’ve made (£15)brooches?

      Hi Hilary, I know what you mean about parting with cards you like. The small square Whippets have a hook on the back, but if you wanted one as a brooch I can easily put a pin on instead. Message me which you like either on instagram @fishinkblog or and we can sort from there, cheers Craig
