A vivid fall, and a green winter, the deer enjoying the late apples and the squirrel collecting for the cold time of year, in the country, there is always something to look at, something to store away in my minds eye, treasures. In quite a traditional way, I have set up this linocut, hoping that the stylizing of the trees etc, makes it feel more in time.
WHAT IS A LINOCUT?: A handprinted linocut reduction print, reduction means that as I am printing the very short edition of only 10 prints, I cut away areas to keep the color I just printed. This is quite a complicated process, great fun, as you don't really know how the print is going to turn out until the end, it is a technique I enjoy very much, as it feels quite like you are sculpting with your linocut knife and painting with your roller of ink. Experience has taught me incredibly much about this way of printing, managing the ink, using pressure, etc etc, given the choice this is my favorite way of printmaking!
You can join over 60.000 viewers on Youtube, to see how a reduction print is made and printed by me, either go to www.youtube.com and search under my name.
All my lino prints are printed by me, printmaking is my big love!
I have used a range of beautiful non toxic blockprinting inks in quite strong happy colors.

the image measures 15.5" x 12" (39cm x 30cm)
and paper is 17.5" x 14.5". (45 cm x 37 cm)

SHIPPING: I'll mail it to you, protected by tissuepaper and a cellophane sleeve so it arrives safely, in a mail tube, I do pack with great care, as you can see in my reviews.
It comes with a flier explaining what a lino reduction is, see thumbnail. Just let me know if you want it gift wrapped?
