I have 2 large cherry trees and every year, it's a race between me and the blackbirds for who gets them!! (they almost always win ;o))
WHAT IS A LINOCUT?: A handprinted linocut reduction print, reduction means that as I am printing the very short edition of 10 prints, I cut away areas to keep the color I just printed.
I sometimes print 2 colors at once, and that makes for small variations in each print. I hope you treasure this as part of your original linocut. Once I am done, with the cutting, the lino plate is so cut away, it does not produce any more prints, I keep it as proof of being mine and it is fun to show if anyone asks how a reduction print is made.
You can join almost 58.000 viewers on Youtube, to see how a reduction print is made and printed by me, go to the "me at work" section, and watch my reduction film.
All my lino prints are printed by me, printmaking is my big love!
I have used a range of beautiful warm waterbased inks, to create my cheeky blackbird.
