Artwork description:

Palm Springs 1 is the first print of this series. Depicting the cool architecture and poolside desert life of Palm Springs. Created with blocks of colour and simplicity, to show a tranquil way of life. An oasis of calm, in a sometimes kitsch but always glamorous way.

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 around 10 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 15.4 by 20.5cm and the paper size is approximately 21.5 by 26.5 cm.

The room scenes are computer generated, and therefore the size of the picture is inaccurate and for illustration use only.

Materials used:

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