You know that hovering moment, in summer, all you can hear is the buzz of insect wings and the smell of green, that lovely suspended moment in time, where you just relish the summers breath.
WHAT IS A LINOCUT?: A handprinted 7 color linocut reduction print, reduction means that as I am printing the very short edition of 12 prints, I cut away areas to keep the color I just printed. 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!
All my lino prints are printed by me, printmaking is my big love!
I have used a range of non toxic blockprinting inks to describe my waterlily in cool blues and greens.
"Summers Breath" is printed on a warm white piece of beautiful printmaking paper,
the paper measures 18" x 12" (46 cm x 30 cm)
and image measures 16" x 9.5". (40 cm x 24 cm)
I have signed, titled and numbered the print. Please note you might not receive the number in the photo. I only have 12 Water lily prints, as my lino reductions are always in very small editions, more fun for me, and "more" original art for you!
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!
