Artwork description:

Like a lot of people a good sunset or sunrise with fantastic colours will stop me in my tracks every time. I've been 'collecting' sunsets for year, trying to whip out my phone and capture the colours. I knew I wanted to use them in my work, but how?
Well I decided to try not to over think it and just enjoy creating the colours and patterns, and so here is my first of what I hope to be a series of sunsets.

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 20 by 30.5 and the paper size is approximately 26.5 by 36.5 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.
