Further Info

Long Shadows is a reduction linocut print meaning that the lino block is carved in between each layer of ink. I can’t remember now how many stages there were in this print, five or six I think but it could have been more, it’s so easy to lose count!

Afternoon sun, an avenue of trees and the reaching fingers of long shadows.
Inspired by an afternoon walk with the dogs where I was chasing the sun, hunting for light and making use of a phone camera. The print was compiled from some of those photos and aimed to catch some of the soft romance of that wonderful afternoon light and the amazing shadows as they fell across the field.

The inks used for this print are Schmincke Aqua-Linoldruck which are water soluble inks with high lightfast properties.
The paper is Zerkall fine art 120gsm printmaking paper. Due to the lighter nature of the paper, the weight of the inks and the pressure of the press the paper isn’t completely flat, see images.

As each print is inked and printed by hand there will be slight variations between each print, each one is in it’s own way an original.
Colours may appear slightly differently on a computer screen to the actual print.

Handmade Prints

These prints are all handmade and as such there can be slight variations in the prints in an edition, though these are very slight. It means that each print in an edition is unique and is an original in it’s own right.

Varied Editions (VE) 

Prints that are marked VE by the edition number are part of a varied edition. This means there are enough difference between the prints that they are sold by their individual number. 


Please bear in mind that although I take every care to photograph the prints as faithfully as possible there can also be variations in colour between what you view on a screen and the original print.
