Sometimes to just go with the tide, is the way to be, relaxed, chilled out, not struggling, but enjoying, savouring every last juicy bit of every day!
WHAT IS A LINOCUT?: a large hand printed , hand inked linocut, I cut the lino shapes, ink them up and put them through my etching press, for every print the fish have to be inked again. I also add a technique called chine colle, where you paste papers onto the print in the printing process, creating a collage on the paper "under" the printing. I have added a gorgeous warm orange with gold flecks and a cool aqua green paper also with gold flecks.
For this print I choose a piece of warm white printmaking paper. It looks great floated in theframe, making it quite large and a focal point of the space you choose for it!
EDITION: As I choose different papers to print on, and print the fish in different colors, no print will ever be exactly like the next, I will vary colors etc through the edition, so an edition of 20 with chine colle, is there to give you an idea of the number of prints I will make using my fish, a very limited edition!
SIZE: "With the Tide" is printed in a gorgeous dark blue ,on a piece of beautiful printmaking paper.
This is a Iarge print that measures 14" x 20 " (36cm x 50 cm)
I have signed, titled and numbered the print.
You can see me printmake in various films, go to www.youtube.com and search under my name.
SHIPPING: I'll mail it to you from my studio in Denmark, it takes about 10 days to the US and Australia, and a small week to Europe, I am very pleased that you have the patience!! It is mailed in a tube, protected by tissuepaper, with a nice flier explaining what a linocut is.
I happily gift wrap!
Thanks for visiting, and welcome back!
