Artwork description:

Not a burst of brass instruments, but more a 'showy outward display'.

A group of tropical plants which were sunning themselves but with such style and finesse. Combined with the architecture and the strong sunshine creating such fantastic shadows, I knew this quick photo would have to become a print.

A reduction linocut is a totally hand made print. No machines are used. Only one piece of Lino is used throughout the process and so no prints can be reproduced.

I draw the image I want to create on the Lino, in reverse. Using carving tools I take away all the lightest parts which will be the colour of the the paper, I then ink up the Lino with a colour and press this onto some thick printing paper. Anything I want to be that colour I carve away and ink up the next colour and so the process goes until the image appears.

This print went through this process around 18 times, to achieve the final image. I used oil based Calico artist inks and the paper is Italian Fabriano Rosapina.

The printed area is approximately 30cm x 20 cm and the paper size is approximately 36.5 x26.5 cm.

Please note, outside the U.K. and USA local customs/duty charges may be incurred. These are the responsibility of the customer and outside my control.
