a memory from a beach walk, a gorgeous, quite cloudy morning in August, the colors of the sea, the rocks even the sea birds were so spectacular, I had to try and recreate them! I am aware that I have more than nodded at Inuit art in this piece, simply because I think they are masters at depicting the world of the oceans and the beach.
Please note that this is a large monoprint, hence the price, there is only this one print, in this color combination! I ink up the linoshapes very freehand, with several colors mixing, so I don't/can't reproduce the exact same print.
WHAT IS A LINOCUT?: an original linocut print, This particular print is printed from many different lino shapes, nothing is repeated, all the rocks are different with different markings. I ink them up with a roller, and after 16 years of printmaking I am skilled in making color variations with the roller and different color inks, adding depth and range to the colors. The paper is a very heavy piece of printmaking paper in a warm white that really suits the colors.
You can see me linocut and print in various films on Youtube, go to www.youtube.comand search under my name, or have a look in the "me at work" section here in my shop
SIZE: "Sunrise Beach" is printed on a beautiful piece of warm white printmaking paper,
the actual paper measures 37" x 25" (94 cm x 63 cm) leaving plenty of room for you to frame this to become a real focal point in your room. This print does fit standard frames, with a custom cut mat.
EDITION: I print my large Beach prints as mono prints.
SHIPPING: I mail the print to you, rolled up in a tube, protected by tissue paper, and a plastic sleeve. A flier that explains a linocut is added. And I am very happy to gift wrap.
I am right here if you have questions, or maybe you would like to see the other couple of prints, in different colors? Just get in touch!
All the best and thanks for visiting,
