This multi-coloured, mulit-layered linocut print was inspired by a recent trip to Canberra Botanic Gardens. The strawflowers were on show in a riot of colour and form and I started to sketch and plan this print the moment I got home.
Process and Materials
'Spring Strawflowers' has been printed with five different colours in five different layers. Every layer was printed using hand-carved blocks. The blocks are inked up and the paper is lain over the top before being hand burnished in order to pick up the ink and leave the impression on the paper. I use beautiful Japanese rice paper and artist quality printing ink to get an even print and saturated colour.
The print is A4 size (21cm x 29.7cm).
Each print is signed and packaged in beautiful tissue paper and supported with a heavy card stock backing board. It will be sent in a rigid mailer to protect it from damage.
