Calm is a hand printed reduction Lino print. It is one of an edition of 8 prints. I really enjoy printing Moonlight reflecting on the water’s surface, Calm is a study in calming blues of a peaceful seascape. Reduction prints are made using one block of Lino to print all the colours. The image I want to create is drawn onto the Lino, if it is a well known place or there are letters or numbers, the image needs to be put on the Lino in reverse. I then start by carving away the parts of the Lino that I want to remain the paper colour, for me this is usually white, once this is complete I ink the block and print it. This process is repeated until all the colours are printed. As each print is hand printed there are slight variations between each print making each one unique. Once each colour has been printed the block of Lino can’t be used again, the number of successful prints you have are how many are in the edition. This is printed using Schmincke water based ink on Somerset Satin 300GSM paper. The print is numbered, titled and signed on the front. The printed image is 15 x 20 cm. It is sold unmounted and unframed. The image will be sent securely packaged by Royal Mail.
