is there anything happier than a Sunflower? It wakes you up with a big smile every morning, hang it in your kitchen or where you need a pick me up!
WHAT IS A LINOCUT?: A handprinted linocut reduction print, reduction means that as I am printing the very short edition of only 10 prints, I cut away areas to keep the color I just printed. This is quite a complicated process, great fun, as you don't really know how the print is going to turn out until the end, it is a technique I enjoy very much, as it feels quite like you are sculpting with your linocut knife and painting with your roller of ink. Experience has taught me incredibly much about this way of printing, managing the ink, using pressure, etc etc, given the choice this is my favorite way of printmaking!
To see how a reduction print is made and printed by me, 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!
I have used a range of beautiful non toxic blockprinting inks in strong happy colors.
SIZE: "Sunrise" is printed on a warm white piece of velvety printmaking paper,
the image measures 16" x 11.5" (40cm x 29cm)
and paper is 19" x 14". (48 cm x 36 cm)
EDITION: I have signed, titled and numbered the print. It is one of only 10 prints.
Please note you might not receive the number in the photo.
SHIPPING: I'll mail the sunflowers to you, protected by tissuepaper and a cellophane sleeve so it arrives safely, in a mail tube, I do pack with great care, as you can see in my reviews.
It comes with a flier explaining what a lino reduction is, see thumbnail. Just let me know if you want it gift wrapped?
If you have any questions, just get in touch with me!
