27-100 Heading Home - lino print
Heading home as the sun is setting with that particular chicken gait ... it's time to head back to the coop and roost under cover.
Loved the amazing green sheen on this chicken's feathers, and the contrasty red comb and other face features.
This is a great print for the hallway near the laundry or mudroom to bring the outdoor vibe a little further into the house. #chooklovers
Would make a good companion piece to Young Magpie.
This is a small, limited series (not technically an edition) totalling 4 hand coloured AP (Artist Proof) prints. If you love owning and/or gifting bold art pieces that at most 4 other people on the entire planet will have, this is for you!
I make limited edition lino prints by first carving a design into a piece of linoleum, then rolling the lino with ink, and then pressing this onto paper.
Once I’ve created the lines, I do all my colouring with Winsor and Newton Artists’ Watercolours. When creating my original art, I use Archival quality watercolour paper, usually 100% cotton Arches paper from France.
The dimensions of this image are about 15cm x 15cm (approx 6" x 6"), and there is ample paper around that for mounting and framing. Good framing adds around 10 - 12cm (5") on all sides, more at the bottom.
I recommend ordering Unframed if it's coming to you via the postal service/s - this saves us both money on postage, and gives you the chance to support a local framing artisan, too. [Hesitant to manage framing locally? Download my new art collectors introduction to the basics.]
If you meet me at a market stall to pick up, I can arrange professional framing for you in about 2-3 weeks.
