This beautiful Datura, or as we call it, Angel Trumpet, grows in the patio of my old house in Andalucia, the fragrance is magic and the flowers pure beauty. The "tiles" under are a reminder of the Moorish heritage this part of world enjoys so gorgeously.
This linocut is printed in oilbased inks, warm and luminous colors, I have used several greens, a muted light blue and a lovely terracotta. The "tiles" are printed in a turquoise green, typical of the area.
A 6 colour lino reduction print, reduction means that as I am printing the very short edition of 8 prints, I cut away areas to keep the colour I just printed. You can join over 57.000 viewers on Youtube, to see how a reduction print is made and printed by me, go to www.youtube.com and and search under my name. All my lino prints are printed by me, printmaking is my big love!
"Angel Trumpet" is printed on a warm beautiful creamy piece of velvety printmaking paper,
the paper measures 16" x 22" (41 cm x 56 cm)
and the image, that is the lino plate with the flowers measure 13.5" x 13.5". (35 cm x 35 cm)
plus the separate plate for the "tiles" measures 13.5" x 3.5" (35cm x 9cm)
I have signed, titled and numbered the print, I only have a couple of prints left.
I'll mail it to you protected in a mailing tube with tissue paper and cellophan wrap so it arrives safely. It comes with a flier explaining what a lino reduction is. See thumbnail above.
