Further Info

This is an edition of 7 prints. It is a multi block linocut. There were three blocks used with each block being cut into two or more pieces to form a jigsaw. This enables me to ink up different colours on the different parts of the jigsaw for each pass through the press. 

It’s the bittersweet sadness and warm melancholy feeling you get when saying goodbye. This print bids farewell to the day and so long to the summer, and the touch of Autumn hangs in the air. It was also my last print as we moved from Surrey to our new home in Somerset. The tree in the fields is in Seale and can be seen from the North Downs Way as it skirts the village.  For me it was part of the school run, taking the back route to avoid traffic (or just for the joy of it) and a place to escape to with the dogs when I needed open space and room to breathe. The print is my quiet moment of reflection before moving on. 

The inks used are Caligo Safe Wash which are oil based inks with high lightfast properties.

The paper is Zerkall Extra Smooth 150gsm printmaking paper.

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.
