Lino cuts are back!
(wipe brow) Its been huge in the studio over the past month, with large oil on canvas pieces, pastel on pastel board and mixed media work all being produced for various exhibitions and awards. A large chuck of my time and focus have been on lino cat printing and the making of half a dozen new plates. The themes have been varied including Childhood, Dragonflies and Art Deco objects.
Such a fantastic media that you can come back to again and again and really experiment with. I like to produce a standard black ink, then work one with colourful Inks over the top, and also play with the paint colour. They come in Editions of 25 but every print is different. Pop over to the Gallery page and check out the new prints!
