Three Mandarins - hand coloured lino print
More inspiration from the farmers market! These vibrant mandarins seduced me with their citrusy sweetness and begged me to set their luminescent orange against liquid blue. How could I resist?
For all those juicy spirits in your life, who remind you to savour every moment of every day!
The limited run of 3 lino prints is sold out. This is an AP (artist's proof), a colour test if you will.
If you love owning and/or gifting bold art pieces that at most 3 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 30cm x 15cm (approx 12" 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 custom framing for you, allow 2-3 weeks.
