I wanted to make a tribute to our feathered companions. And they're so 'graphic' with their black and white feather markings, too ... perfect for a black and white lino print!
Any of these just 6 lino prints would be a stunning and happy addition to your Small Artworks on Paper collector's wall.
There are 6 prints... one (see picture 2) is black and white, another (AP3) has the sunsetty pink sky, and the other 4 have the blue sky (see main picture).
This is a small, limited series (not technically an edition) totalling 5 hand coloured AP (Artist Proof) prints and one black ink on white paper only. If you love owning and/or gifting bold art pieces that at most 5 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.
