Spirit of Autumn in a Maxi Dress - hand coloured lino prints
She blew into my imagination one windy autumn day, in this changing season of restless air, stormy skies and cooling rain (at least that's what it's like in my corner of the world!). The spirit of autumn swoops and glides with ease!
A visual invocation of delight for free spirits of all ages!
This is a limited run totalling 5 in the edition and an AP (Artist Proof) print, all hand printed and coloured. 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 24cm x 30cm (approx 10" x 12"), 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. [Cautious about managing 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.
