New reduction Lino , finally finished
This print I started back in spring, based on flowers that were my nan’s, though she has passed away a few years ago now. I find plants and nature very comforting for their demonstration of life and death and life again. This was about 5 layers and 7 or 8 different colours ( I lost count) and I am happy with the final result , the vibrant pink colour and the shape of the leaves were the main things I wanted to showcase in this print.
Some of the photos from the printing process….
The final print is just a bit smaller than A3, entirely printed by hand at home, using my trusty spoon. I used traditional grey lino and oil based inks.
It is an edition of 6 variable prints ( the last layer I changed the colours for some of them) and if you really like it you can find it on my etsy shop.
Also available to see it in the flesh at Painswick Artburst event , from the 17th of august!
