In a fairytale land far away, where birds and fish are equals in the miracle of how they travel!
This is a large reduction linocut with 8 colors, reduction means that as I print the colors and sculpt the plate, I cut away the lino as I go along, leaving a lino plate I can't print more from, so there are only 11 prints, almost all of them in different colors!
Reduction lino is quite a difficult process as you have to register, that is, line up the plate and paper every single time you print, and with 8 colors, this amounts to a lot of patience!
All my linocuts are handprinted by me, the artist, and I sign, title and number each print.
If you would like to see some Youtube films with me printmaking, and you can see me make a reduction print, look at and search under my name for a whole gang of printmaking films, or have a look in the "me at work section here in my shop"
SIZE: The linocut itself measures 27" x 16", (68cm x 40cm )
and the beautiful piece of warm white paper measures 31" x 22",(78cm x 55cm)
As all the prints are quite different, you receive the number in the photo, no 9 of 11, this print does have a slight less ink coverage and that is reflected in the price!
Linocuts are wonderful graphic pieces of printmaking, that can make for a real focal point in your room, you are so welcome to ask me about framing advice etc.
SHIPPING: I'll mail "Feather and Fin" to you protected by tissuepaper and a plastic sleeve so it arrives safely, see my reviews. My prints come with a flier (see thumbnail) explaining what a linocut is, and who I am as an artist.
If you have any questions just get in touch..... that's what I am here for!
Thanks for looking and welcome back.
