Artwork description:

being a pair of free wheeling swallows in the first of the summer air, must be a wonderful feeling of freedom, so surely, 2 swallows make a summer!

This is a reduction linocut, also called lost plate, as when I am done, having printed all the colours, I can't print from the plate again. Carving the lino plate is a labour of love, and making it several colours, means that for every colour, the print goes through the press again, time consuming, but oh so satisfying! My favourite printmaking technique and one that celebrates the art of handmade prints.

The lovely piece of bright white heavy weight printmaking paper measures 52 cm x35 cm (20.5" x 14") and the actual lino plate, the printed area measures 44 cm x 25 cm (17" x 10")

I have signed, titled and numbered each print in a very short edition of only 10 prints. Please note you receive the print in the photo, this is the artists proof.

Shipping from my studio in Denmark, I have many years experience of packing my prints so they arrive safely, see my over 700 reviews!

Thanks for looking and you are very welcome with questions.
