Along the edges of all the fields nearby, there are hundreds and hundreds of daisies in the summer. They are such a cheerful sight which raises your spirits.
The printed area is 30cm x 40cm and the paper is 35cm x 45cm. It is printed in ultramarine blue and a yellow-orange ink on white Heritage paper. I wanted to experiment with the mix of the blue and yellow-orange inks. I designed the final print so that the background is pure blue and the centre of the daisies are pure yellow-orange. The leaves are orange-green as they are blue ink with an overlay of yellow orange.
All of my linocut prints turn out slightly differently and this is especially true of two colour linocut prints. They vary depending on how the two colours of ink mix, how much pressures is exerted on the lino and how the two separate linocuts line up. This is one of an edition of 100 prints, and each print is number, titled and signed, all in pencil. If you would like me to scan a copy of the exact print you will receive and email it to you in advance, I am very happy to do that.
As you can see from the last picture, I exhibit this print in a limewash wooden frame. If you can pick them up from me in person, I am happy to sell them framed as well. Contact me for price details. The print will arrive in a poster tube. It is packaged into a clear plastic bag, which has been reinforced with a card insert.
