Clematis was inspired by a photograph taken in the garden in late Spring. Clematis is a one plate reduction Lino cut. This means that one piece of Lino is used to create the final print. The image is drawn on the Lino in reverse and, then the carving begins. After carving, a colour ink input on the plate and printed onto paper, the process is repeated with different pieces carved away and different inks printed until the image finally appears. I’ve included the print in process shots This print was printed 10 times to create the image. The print is printed on lightweight Hosho paper using artist quality oil based inks. Please note the prints in a room setting are not to scale. If more than one print is purchased, the prints will be posted together and excess postage will be refunded.
