Further Info

A handmade limited edition linocut print of hay rolls in Somerset fields.
Limited edition of 19 prints.

This print is a multi block lino cut. It was created using four separate blocks printed one of top of the other to complete the final image.

This print was the result of a “Stop the car!” moment. I have always loved the site of hay rolls sitting out in the field and I couldn’t resist this field on the Watchet to Blue Anchor road in Somerset. The heat of the height of summer, the neatness of a nearly completed harvest and the vast beautiful spaces that are our farmlands give me a feeling of peace and completion. Another harvest is nearly done, nature has shared her bounty with us and we are nearly ready for the colder months that are just around the corner.

The inks used for this print are Caligo Safe Wash inks which are water soluble oil based ink with high lightfast properties. The paper is Fabriano Unica 250gsm printmaking paper.

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 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. Please also 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.
