Artwork description:

When fields turn to gold and the days shorten, the swallows depart for warmer climes and we look forward to their return. This is one of the fields surrounding the village where I live, and watching the acrobatic and fast swallows is a real pleasure.

This is not a print made digitally and printed by machine; this 13 colour lino reduction print has all been hand made - drawn, lino carved and printed by hand, so there are minor variations making each and every print unique. One piece of lino was used throughout, with colours added and more lino cut away each time. You can see some of the stages of printmaking, by clicking through the photographs. Printed with water based light fast ink on 300 gsm Somerset satin acid free paper. Signed and numbered on the front in pencil. Room setting images are visually as close to scale as possible, but not to actual scale. This is the third of 3 Artist Proofs; I had intended to keep it for exhibition submission, but with the likelihood of galleries remaining closed for some time yet, have decided to offer it for sale.

Delivered with protective acid free tissue paper in a strong postal tube. UK delivery by Royal Mail 1st class signed for. International items are sent Royal Mail tracked & signed / tracked; outside of EU and America there may be local duty / tax, if so this is payable by the buyer.
