'Two Shades of Grey' handpulled woodcut print
A duck swims peacefully on the lake near my home, casting reflections on the water in this handmade print on fine Japanese Tosa Shi paper. Rather than being passed through a press, the tranquil image has been printed by careful hand burnishing from the back of the paper with a bamboo baren. The process was repeated with two plates, each with different tones of grey. This is labour intensive but allows the printmaker to vary the pressure and so achieve stronger and softer effects where wanted. It also means that each print made is unique and the one you receive may have slight differences from the images here.
Tosa Shi paper has two different sides. For this print the slightly rougher and more absorbent surface was used to achieve a soft and subtly textured image.
The title and artist's signature are written in pencil under the image.
Limited edition of 40 prints.
Image size 30 x 22 cm (approx 12 x 8.75")
Paper size approx 40 x 30 cm
This print is sold unframed and unmounted for economical and safe shipping. Your print will be sent to you carefully rolled in tissue paper and protected in a sturdy postal tube.

I am very fortunate that there is a wonderful lake with abundant wildfowl just a few hundred yards from my studio. A quick stroll to get a breath of fresh air can end up being an hour spent with sketchbook and camera enjoying the birds.
