Pigs in Blankets is a British recipe for little sausages in a crusty pastry... I thought it would be quite fun to have on your wall....
a large hand printed ,hand inked linocut, I cut the lino, ink it up and put it through my etching press, for every print the plate has to be inked again. A large black and white linocut is quite deceptive in that it looks easy, but is anything but, to get a solid black is very difficult so please accept that it is rarely perfect! Thank you!
the little piglets are printed in a gorgeous warm black on a piece of beautiful warm white printmaking paper, with oilbased printmaking inks as they give the best cover..
The actual piece of paper measures 25" x 16" (63 x 40 cm)
and the lino plate measures 21,5" x 12,5" (54 cm x 32 cm)
The size makes it a real focal point for your room, and can be framed really large, it is so strong and present!
I have signed and numbered the print, please note you might not receive the number in the photo and the interior photo is not to scale.
you can see me printmake in various films, go to www.youtube.com and search under my name or look in the "me at work" section in this shop.
I'll mail it to you, protected by tissuepaper, with a nice flier explaining what a linocut is. I am happy to gift wrap!
Thanks for visiting with me, and welcome back!
