Artist's description:

This Linocut print is an illustration of a late summer evening, when returning home at dusk, I caught a glimpse of a Nightjar sillouetted against the sky. At this time the hedgerows were full of Dogroses and Honeysuckle, nectar for Hawkmoths. The pattern of the roses was inspired by a piece of Elizabethan embroidered cloth.

This print is a reduction Linocut, made by cutting and overprinting successive layers of ink from a single block of Lino, until it is reduced to the last few details. I make very limited editions when I use the reduction method, usually ten prints or less and when finished they cannot be repeated as the block has been destroyed in the making.

I use water-based relief inks, blending them to achieve the colours that I like to use and I print onto traditional printmakers paper, either Somerset Satin or a French milled paper. The paper is a soft white with a velvety surface and may have the deckled edge on one side, depending on where it is cut from the full sheet. I use an old Victorian book press to take the impression or rub by hand with a Japanese baren if the print is too big to fit into the press.

Your print will be carefully prepared for shipping, wrapped in acid free tissue paper and rolled inside a sturdy cardboard tube, cushioned with tissue at either end and securely sealed.

Materials used:

Water-based inks, cotton printmaking paper, rubber rollers and an iron press.
