Test print from original reduction linocut edition of 16. The reduction method (my favourite technique) uses a single piece of lino to produce a multi-coloured print. The lino is gradually cut away as each layer is printed and the image emerges. Sometimes, only a very small printable area remains for the final, darkest tone. As the block is essentially destroyed during the process, a reduction print can never be reprinted.


Print size 270 x 170mm. Hand printed on Hosho Japanese paper using a small relief press. Due to the nature of the printmaking process minor variations can occur between prints, making each one a truly unique piece of artwork.


This print was inspired by the scene that greeted us on our return to Morston Quay after a boat trip to see the seals at Blakeney Point. Before we set sail it had been pouring with rain, but we were assured by Bishops Boats that it would clear up and before long it had turned into a lovely sunny evening.
