Description

These are three lino-prints I designed, cut and printed on a hand-press in my attic studio.

They are not digital prints but original limited edition prints produced by hand. I am only printing forty of these images.

Firstly I draw the images onto pieces of lino. Then I carefully carve ithem out, (loosing the odd finger in the process) before inking them with hand rollers using various linseed oil based printing inks. They are 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 images here. Every print using this method is quite different from the last so the prints that you see above are exactly the same prints you will receive.

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

The image size of each print is18 x 25cm. The frame measures 40 x 77cm.

Sorry about the postage but the frame is well-built and heavy!

It will come delivered sandwiched between boards and lots of bubble wrap.

Thanks for looking and please take a peep at my other Folksy shop "Denise Burden Art".

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 as well as cycling though flower filled meadows, I imagined them zooming along a coastal 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 through their territory.
