Artwork description:

Limited Edition colour linocut of the River Axe where it meets the sea at Uphill, near Weston-super-Mare in Somerset.

This is a large linocut made using several carved blocks of lino, one for each colour. The ink is transferred to the paper by rubbing the back with a baren and a wooden spoon. (Takes a while!).

The actual print is 28cm wide and 37cm high (roughly A3 - so pretty big).

This is a variable edition of 50, and, as always with linocuts, each print will vary slightly since they are produced by hand. Each print is numbered, titled and signed on the front by me, the artist.

I grew up in Weston-super-Mare and have family there, so frequently return. Uphill is a village (now really a suburb) of Weston at the far end of the bay. As you walk along the long sandy beach you are finally stopped on your way south by the impassable muddy lower reaches of the River Axe. Here small boats are pulled up on the banks and sometimes sail out into the bay.

The island of Steep Holm and the distinctive headland of Brean Down can be seen across the water. At low tide, it looks as if you can walk across to them - and sometimes tourists try (and have to be rescued by the RNLI!).

The linocut is printed in oil-based inks on acid free paper and comes with a mount, backing board and cellophane wrap so it is ready for a 40cm by 50cm frame.
Please note international orders will be posted without a mount and rolled in a tube with acid-free tissue.

This is a companion piece to "Boats at Uphill". I plan to do a sequence of linocuts following the River Axe and River Parrett in Somerset.

Materials used:

oil-based printing inks, colour, lino
