A lady I know will be cross with me for the title of this print, she has a niece who works for the RSPB and there is no such thing as a Seagull, but these gulls are soaring above the sea, and Soaring Seagulls sounds nice! 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 has writing or a “right way round” then I have to make sure what I put on the Lino is a mirror image of what I want the print to end up like. I then start by carving away the parts of the Lino that I want to remain the colour of the paper (for me this is normally white) out of the Lino block. Once this is complete I ink the block and print it. This process is repeated until all the colours have been printed. As each print is hand made there are slight variations between each print making them unique. Soaring Seagulls is 10 cm wide and 15 cm high and is printed on a slightly larger piece of paper using Schmincke water based ink on Somerset Satin 300GSM paper. The print is numbered, titled and signed on the front. It is sold unmounted and unframed. The image will be sent securely packaged by Royal Mail.
