You know that feeling, when everything just comes together and works, when success is easy! That is a good feeling!
A handprinted linocut reduction print, reduction means that as I am printing the very short edition of 10 prints, for each and every color, the prints, all of them, go through the press and then I cut away areas to keep the color I just printed. It is a bit of a head game and I LOVE IT! I have used 9 colors, quite masculine tones, in waterbased inks, with a sooty black as the last color.
You can join over 60.000 viewers on Youtube, to see how a reduction print is made and printed by me, go to www.youtube.com and search under my name, or have a look in the "me at work" section here in my shop. All my lino prints are printed by me, printmaking is my big love!
"Right Place - Right Time" is printed on a warm beautiful piece of velvety Zerkall printmaking paper,
the image measures 12" x 16" (30 cm x 40 cm)
and paper is 16" x 19". (40 cm x 48 cm)
This is a quite a large print, and strong enough to be framed even larger to make a real splash on your wall!
I have signed, titled and numbered the print.
Please note you might not receive the number in the photo, there are some color differences in the print as some of the colors are rolled up together, this for me is part of the creative process and I hope you treasure them as what makes original prints original.
I'll mail it to you protected by tissuepaper and a cellophane sleeve so it arrives safely. It comes with a flier explaining what a lino reduction is. See thumbnail above.
If you have any questions, just get in touch with me!
Thank you for looking in my shop, and welcome back.
