Artwork description:

In a previous life I was an archaeologist and still enjoy visiting the sites. This summer I visited West Wales and was thrilled to finally get to see Pentre Ifan, the largest and best preserved Neolithic dolmen in Wales, if not the UK. Dating from 3,500BC it is still extremely impressive and although the stones weigh many tonnes, it still gives the impression of being delicate.

This image is based on a photograph I took and subsequent drawing, and is a 7-colour reduction linoprint.

Reduction linoprinting begins with carving a design into a new lino block and printing the first colour on each sheet of paper in the edition. I then carve more of the same block away and proceed to print the second colour. The process of carving and printing continues for each additional colour until the final layer is printed. Typically, one prints from lightest to darkest colour. After completion of the print, another edition can never be made because the block has been carved away during the creation process. As it is handprinted there can be minor variations in colour and density between prints.

Handburnished on Fabriano 200gsm paper using Schmincke inks.
