Multicolour linocut of a troop of ancient warriors, in front of a stunning backdrop - Lake Pukaki in New Zealand.
I was inspired by the breathtaking scenery of New Zealand, combined with the amusement of finding a Lord of the Rings film location around every corner. Lake Pukaki was my favourite view of the whole trip; I combined it with photos and sketches made at historical re-enactment events to compose my final picture.
It is printed in six colours (I think!) with a blended roll to achieve the subtle tones in the sky.
Pure white Japanese kozo paper, oil based printmaking ink.
