The weir at Lynford Lakes was the inspiration behind this print. I visited this beautiful spot one spring morning to walk my dog and meet up with a printmaker friend there for tea and cake, which I can highly recommend.
This original reduction linocut is from a limited edition of 14. The reduction method (my favourite technique) uses a single piece of lino to produce a multi-coloured print. This one consists of seven layers. As the block is essentially destroyed during the process, a reduction print can never be reprinted.
Print size 203 x 305mm. Hand printed on Somerset Satin 250g 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.
Each print is numbered, titled and signed at the bottom. The artwork is unmounted, allowing the buyer to choose how it is mounted. It is shipped flat protected by strong cardboard packaging and sent by tracked mail.
