The beauty of a summer meadow, full of wildflowers and with the hares just sitting there, surrounded by the buzzing of bees, the summer breeze and the music of birdsong, can you hear it, smell it?
This is a large reduction linocut with 8 colors, reduction means that as I print the colors and sculpt the plate, I cut away the lino as I go along, leaving a lino plate I can't print more from, so there are only 8 prints.
Reduction lino is quite a difficult process as you have to register, that is, line up the plate and paper every single time you print, and with 8 colors, this amounts to a lot of patience!
All my linocuts are handprinted by me, the artist, and I sign, title and number each print.
If you would like to see some Youtube films with me printmaking, and you can see me make a reduction print, look at https://www.youtube.com and search under my name for a whole gang of printmaking films, or have a look in the "me at work section here in my shop"
SIZE: The linocut itself measures 23" x 10", (60cm x 26cm )
and the beautiful piece of warm white paper measures 27" x 14", (68cm x 36cm)
Linocuts are wonderful graphic pieces of printmaking, that can make for a real focal point in your room, you are so welcome to ask me about framing advice etc.
SHIPPING: I'll mail "Summer Meadow" to you protected by tissuepaper and a plastic sleeve so it arrives safely, see my reviews. My prints come with a flier (see thumbnail) explaining what a linocut is, and who I am as an artist.
If you have any questions just get in touch..... that's what I am here for!
Thanks for looking and welcome back.
