I made this linocut after an epic weekend down in Snowdonia helping update the famous book 'Scrambles in Snowdonia'. This is the view walking towards Y Lliwedd, I think it was when we were on the Watkin path but can't be certain. I love the dramatic ridge, it looks just as foreboding as Crib Goch, in fact the whole horsehoe is just full of breathtaking views, enough to create a whole series of linocuts..!
I make prints in a more painterly way and have inked up this plate all in one go, then run it through my printing press. I find it more expressive using this technique than the traditional reduction linocut or multi-plate method.
Hand printed onto Fabriano 50 fine art paper. Limited edition print of 6, printed in a mix of yellow ochre, burnt sienna and ultramarine-turquoise linseed printing inks. Each print differs slightly due to the way each of them have been inked up. This listing is for the print in the picture, which is no. 5 in the edition.
Image size: 11.2 x 16 inches (28.5 x 41cm)
Paper size: 13.7 x 19.7 inches (35 x 50cm). Fits a 40x 50cm frame nicely with a mount.
Due to its size, this print is shipped in protective film in a sturdy wide cardboard roll. It is loosely rolled to spring flat when opened. Frame and mount not included.
