Anthony Hopkinson
Seabright Bantam, Drypoint, 2011. Edition of 10, 30 x 30cm. £100

A long time painter, Anthony has since taken up printmaking. Printing is now his main artistic activity. He started with screenprinting. "The relatively recent development of water-based inks for screenprinting has made it a form of printmaking which can be carried out cheaply, simply and safely at home using non-toxic, waterbased inks," he says. "I tend to use only a small number of colours, often just a basic blue, red and yellow. My colours are transparent so a wide range of hues can be produced by printing one colour on top of another, varying the strength of each colour.  I usually produce editions of 10 to 20; As the screen or plate is re-inked for each print in the edition there will be slight variations. (There may be in addition up to two more "Artist's Proofs" in the edition, usually kept as gifts for family and friends)." For a number of years Anthony has been a member of the Cambridge Drawing Society and served as its Treasurer for eight years until 2008 and as President 2009 to 2012. As well as exhibiting regularly with the Cambridge Drawing Society he has shown his work at numerous exhibitions in the Cambridge area as well as the Armed Forces Art Society Annual Exhibition and the RBA Annual Exhibition.
