Description

This is a lino-print I designed, cut and printed on a hand-press in my attic studio.

It is not a digital print but an original limited edition print produced by hand. I am only printing forty of these images. This is number 11.

Firstly I draw the image onto a piece of lino. Then I carefully carve it out, (loosing the odd finger in the process) before inking it with hand rollers using various linseed oil based printing inks. It is then placed flat on my press, covered with Somerset Satin paper and the mangle like roller of the press is turned...
I have never lost the excitement of pulling back the paper on the press to see what is there! Doing everything by hand produces unique images every time as tiny differences in ink used or the roller weight of the press can alter the outcome. This is especially true when using lots of colours as in the image here. Every print using this method is quite different from the last so the print that you see above is exactly the same print you will receive.

Finally, in pencil, I sign it, adding the edition number and title.

The image size is 18 x 25cm which fits into a standard 30 x 40cm frame. Fits perfectly into an ikea frame and mount.

It comes sandwiched between boards and cellophane.

thanks for looking

Inspiration

Inspiration

After "le Tour" came to town in 2014, our part of Yorkshire became flooded with cyclists all retracing the route through the Dales. Although I am normally unsporty, I have since become hooked. This year I imagined them cycling along a coast road with the saltiness getting into their nostrils and hair and the sea-gulls going berserk, swooping and diving at such a strange sight of people in lycra zooming on two wheeled contraptions.
