I am pleased to offer two hand pulled linocut editions this season. They are inspired by my recent wildlife paintings of an osprey, also known as a “fish hawk”, and a willet, which is a type of sandpiper.
Linocut is a printmaking technique in which a sheet of linoleum is used for a relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharp knife or gouge, with the raised, uncarved areas representing a reversal or mirror image of parts to show printed. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller and then impressed onto paper. This printing was done by hand with a wooden spoon instead of a printing press. The matted prints are unframed.
