With a bit of rain and wind the poppies did not last long this year, not really so important as the pods are equally gorgeous!
In this series of what I call Mix and Match linocuts, I have a whole library of different pattern lino plates, that I layer on top of each other. You can custom order colors and combinations.
WHAT IS A LINOCUT?: linocuts layered on top of each other, creates a lush contemporary feel to this handprinted linocut.
the linocut plates are inked up in different colours, a lovely sunny yellow, and a poppy pink to celebrate summer, with the last plate printed in a warm sooty black, then I layer the linoplates on the paper until I have the effect I desire..... this also means that no 2 prints are alike, making your linocut a truly original print.
If you would like to see how a lino is made and printed,
go to: www.youtube.com , search under my name, and watch a whole gang of printmaking movies , in the movie Lino Mix and Match I show you how this kind of printmaking is done.
