Very still, watching and waiting to see if anything is going to happen, totally living in the here and now.
WHAT IS A LINOCUT?: a 5 color linocut print reduction, this means that as I am printing the very short edition of 12 prints I cut away areas to keep the colour I just printed.
It is a bit of a head game, you have to think very carefully, and register the colors correctly, that is, for each color, you ink up the lino and take it through the press, that means the paper and plate has to be exactly positioned every time. A bit crazy, but by far my most favorite printmaking technique! When I am done, the plate is unusable, and I only save it as proof of it being mine. You can join over 60.000 viewers on Youtube, to see how a reduction print is made and printed by me, go to www.youtube.com and search under my name to watch a whole gang of printmaking movies. Some of them are in the "me at work" section of my shop.
All my lino prints are printed by me, printmaking is my big love!
SIZE: I have printed the hares and the Queen Ann Lace in contemporary colors, a bright sky blue and spring green, with an accent of a dark purple brown.
The printmaking paper is a warm white beautiful piece of Canson Edition.
the image measures 11" x 16" (28 cm x 40 cm)
and paper is 14" x 18". (35 cm x 48 cm)
I have signed and numbered the print.
As this is the last print, you do receive this 12/12
SHIPPING: I'll mail it to you protected by tissuepaper and a cellophane sleeve so it arrives safely (see my reviews). It comes with a flier explaining what a lino reduction is. If it is a gift, let me know and I'll giftwrap!
Thank you for looking in my shop, and welcome back.
