Artwork description:

This is such a fun, kitsch print that's just the size of postcard or 6"x4" photo, so the perfect size for any frame.

It's a sun lounger, next to a pool, where the palm trees are reflected in the water. The colours are ramped up, it's cute and bold and all that's missing is a cocktail! I may have just watched a certain Barbie Movie when I started sketching for this.
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 15.3cm by 10.2cm and the paper size is approximately 21.3 by 16.3 cm.

Materials used:
