Artist's description:

This lovely tree peony is one I planted a couple of years ago. It sulked for the first few months - didn't like where I'd planted it - and settled down after I moved it, rewarding me with 5 gorgeous flowers this year. I wanted to capture the subtle colours of the flower in the sun; 4 different greys were used on the petals, and a further 4 colours for the centre. The background is a lovely deep red. You can see some of the printing stages for this, in the 'me at work' section.

This is an 11 colour linocut reduction print; one block of lino is used for the print, progressively adding colour layers with more of the lino cut away each time, until there is very little left of the lino block. As each print is individually made by hand there are minor variations making each print unique. Printed with water based light fast ink on 280 gsm soft white Strathmore acid free paper. Signed and numbered on the front in pencil. Shown framed in an 16'' x 22' frame, for illustration only; a frame with mount to fit is readily available online, or from your local frame maker. It could easily be trimmed to fit a smaller frame. The minimum paper size is 40.5 x 56 cm, the print you receive may be slightly larger.
