This is a reduction multi-colour linocut print of Belle, in yellow and grey, the contemporary and classic colour scheme as per Homes and Interiors.
Belle loves to sleep, and finds the sunniest corner of the house that she can. Isn't this such a picture of true contentment, away from any worries or concerns? I find it so peaceful to watch her sleep.
As an artist, I tend to take inspiration from my immediate surroundings, and some of my recent prints have been pictures of domesticity, finding colour and vibrancy in the most mundane of everyday scenes.
The beautiful tilework in yellow ochre will brighten up any room, and will always be a reminder of Spring. The finish on the walls is such so as to deliberately give a vintage feel.
This is a multi-colour reduction linocut where the image is carved gradually with each layer of colour, so that not much of it is left by the time the design is complete. Each print is made by hand, and signed and numbered. Because of the reductive method, each print is one of a limited edition collection. I often also tweak and adjust colours with each print, which also makes each print completely original and unique.
This is printed on a beautiful lightweight acid-free 140 gsm printing paper with oil-based relief inks, and has a lovely smooth finish.
The print will be sent securely wrapped in a hard backed envelope with cellophane and bubble wrap. I always aim to add a little extra special as a gesture of appreciation and to say thank you! I post packages with track delivery and insurance. For international orders, any import tax and duty will be paid by the buyer.
