Artwork description:

The 3rd of my Palm Springs Series is all about the blue sky, the cool pool and the lure of a day on a sun bed, relaxing. Grab that book you've been meaning to read, put in those headphones and just enjoy the warmth of the sun. If like me, you don't live in such a warm and sunny place, here's the perfect print to remind you that summer will come again!
This is reduction linocut. 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 many 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 30.5 by 20.3cm and the paper size is approximately 36.5 by 26.5 cm.

There are 12 prints in this edition.

Materials used:

lino, inks, rollers, press, paper, cutting tools
