The most colorful and fun of the waders, she runs in front of me on the beach, getting me away from her nest... I am going, I am going....!
This is a reduction linocut with 7 colors, reduction means that as I print the colors and sculpt the plate, I cut away the lino as I go along, leaving a lino plate I can't print more from, so there are only 9 prints! Reduction lino is quite a difficult process as you have to register, that is, line up the plate and paper every single time you print, and with 7 colors, this amounts to a lot of patience!
All my linocuts are handprinted by me, the artist, and I sign, title and number each print.
If you would like to see some Youtube films with me printmaking, and you can see me make a reduction print, look at ?v=qowdjgH3OZ4
SIZE: The linocut itself measures 16" x 10", (40cm x 26cm )
and the beautiful piece of warm white paper measures 20" x 15". (50cm x 38cm)
Linocuts are wonderful graphic pieces of printmaking, that can make for a real focal point in your room, you are so welcome to ask me about framing advice etc.
I ship from my studio in Denmark, with many years experience in packing prints so they arrive safely (see my reviews), it comes in a tube packed with care.
If you have any questions just get in touch..... that's what I am here for!
Thanks for looking and welcome back.
