Shop Announcement:

Hello! Welcome to my Folksy Art Shop.

I am an artist based in the West Midlands, UK, focusing mostly on small format original linocut prints and acrylic paintings.

I graduated from Birmingham Polytechnic in Graphic Design back in 1988 and have practised my art ever since. For a number of years I specialised in pen and ink drawings but over the past few years I have explored other media, and I'm always open to trying new materials and art forms.

Description

This is an original Hand Pressed Linocut Print which I created in two pressings from a single plate. During the second pressing I used Blu Tac and masking fluid to add texture to the stones.

The print shows two of the standing stones at Avebury, an ancient site in Wiltshire. I have designed the print to create a contrast between the enigmatic and ancient stones with the houses of the village nearby.

This is print 1 of 5 prints. I have created several small editions from this plate on different papers. This print uses 2 colours and was created in 2 pressings. I have also created a 'vignette' print which will be a single colour print. Once the vignettes are printed there will be no further prints from this plate, which will be destroyed.

I pressed this print using the back of a spoon and a barren.

The print measures just short of 8 inches x 8 inches and the paper is hand cut to 11 inches x 11.4 inches (approx).

It is printed in Schmincke Aqua Linoldruck Ink (water based) on Daler-Rowney Heavyweight Drawing Paper 220gsm.

The print will come unframed and unmounted.

I will send the print out to you via 1st class Royal Mail Standard Delivery (small parcel) or Standard International Delivery if sending overseas.

Any other items shipped with this print will be sent free in the same package.

Thank you for looking at my artwork.

Inspiration

I wanted to contrast the heavy, irregularly shaped, ancient and mysterious stones with the tiny houses of the village to emphasise the age, texture and weight of the stones,
