Artwork description:

Loch side, the bottom of the Loch at Fort Augustus looking up Loch Ness. The sun was blazing and the ice cream shop was busy. The view was spectacular!

The clouds forming above the hills and white washed cottages on one side. A beautiful Scottish scene. The blue and whites a reminder of the Scottish flag, and the scale of the Loch was truly some thing to behold. I hope I managed to capture its beauty.

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 21 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 x26 cm.
