Artist's description:

Probably most would run scared seeing one of these scuttle past your feet but if you dare to stop and look closely they are really beautiful insects - and they can come in the most luminous greens and blues, almost like a cluster of jewels with six legs :-)
This is the second print of the Goliath beetle, which will be part of a limited edition of only 10.
These are 2 block linocut prints with chine colle'. Chine colle' is just another way to say collage within printmaking, and for this method I handpaint tissue paper to create these luminous colour swatches which I then paste onto the paper before printing the linocut block on the top.
When using chine colle' every print is different due to the nature of the hand painting, and why each piece made is very unique.
Please be aware that due to the nature of the materials used in chine colle' that the print is delicate and must be handled with care.

Materials used:

Somerset satin 300gm and hand painted tissue paper
