Love this


Original limited edition LinoCut Print of Blackthorn Blossom - white blossom detail, its stamen tipped with yellow pollen & new blackthorn leaf, announcing the coming of spring

This image is printed from linocut blocks, built & cut by me using traditional methods. Each block is inked by hand, then HandPulled on my old press - 2 impressions in 3 colours on beautiful paper achieves the final image.

Each print is sequentially numbered, titled and signed in pencil underneath the image in the traditional convention. The edition run total is only 100, achieved in smaller editions of 10 at each printmaking.

This Limited Edition Print is an Original Artwork - not a digital reproduction

There’s something about Blackthorn. I love its announcement of spring, it’s not the first time I’ve made homage to it in print. Tis abundant & thick with blossom in Cornwall at this time of year

I keep revisiting it, intending to pay attention to the blossom contrasting against the thorn (which it does, mostly, before the leaf appears) ...only to be drawn in by the blossom, stamen & new leaf instead!

I adore ‘line’ describing shape when drawing. So in this print, the ‘black’ exists in the lines which describe the blossom.

I'll draw, cut & print Blackthorn Blossom with its thorn eventually.....
