Description

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

It is not a computer print but an original limited edition print produced by hand. I have only printed 20 of these images.

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 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.

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

The image size is 25.5 x 25.5cm which fits into a standard square frame.

It comes wrapped in tissue paper and is posted in a cardboard tube.

Thanks for looking and please take a peep at my other Folksy Shop "cycle art"!

Please note - the artist retains all reproduction and copyright of this work even when sold.

Inspiration

The image was inspired by a visit to Cadaques on the North East coast of Spain, not far from the French border. It was a misty, rainy day in early April and the sun was finally managing to break through to light up the town. I spied this couple sitting under an olive tree gazing out to sea, not speaking to each other but very much together as a couple. They reminded me of a Henry Moore sculpture.
