The coast, and objects I find on the beach are a re-occuring theme in my artwork. Here I printed a grey (almost black) design against a background of delicate blues, ochre and green. Real netting was used to leave a unique impression in the ink giving a feeling of fishing nets on the shore. This print is one of a series of 25, each different in colour and background textures. Title: "Shoreline 13"
HOW IS IT MADE?
Starting with a block of lino, a background is printed using hand mixed ink and sometimes real leaves, flowers or a variety of textured papers and fabrics to leave unique impressions in the ink. The lino block is then carved and the main design is printed on top, lined up by eye with the layer below. Each layer takes several days to dry. Technically the print would be known as a 'monoprint' as each impression is unique and differs from the one before.
Printed part: 20 x 20cm (approx 8 x 8 inches), Overall external Mount Measurements: 35cm High, 34cm Wide (about 13.5 inches square)
This print is medium and you should allow at least an extra 10cm (or 4 inches) wall space all round for when you have it framed.
WHAT IS IN A PRICE?
For your money you are getting an original piece by an established, professional artist with a strong record of exhibiting in quality galleries and outlets. The paper is top quality cartridge, with professional quality lithographic inks. The printing was done at the Gainsborough's House Print Workshop where I work alongside other artists at the birthplace (now museum) of artist Thomas Gainsborough.
