Inspired by my holiday to Skye and the Hebrides, I'd always associated the colours of the West Coast of Scotland to be more silver, then late evening, as the sun broke through the storm clouds the sky turned golden, Caramel Ripple Skye is my interpretation of it, measuring 60 x 40 cm, which is about the largest me and my wooden spoon can manage to print.
It measures 60 cm x 40 cm and is made with Caligo Safewash ink on Somerset Satin 300 GSM paper, and is one of an edition of 8 prints. The picture is sold unframed and unmounted.
Reduction lino printing is a printmaking technique where a design is carved into a piece of linoleum and then printed in multiple layers using the same block.
First, the artist carves away the areas of the linoleum block that they do not want to print, leaving the design raised in relief. The block is then inked with a roller and pressed onto paper, creating the first layer of the print.
Next, the artist carves away more of the block to remove the areas they want to keep the first color, and then applies a second color of ink to the remaining raised design. The block is then printed again on top of the first layer of ink, creating a second layer of the print with a different color.
This process is repeated for each additional color in the design, with the artist carving away more of the block each time to preserve the previous layers of color. The final result is a multi-colored print with a unique texture and depth.
Reduction lino printing requires careful planning and precision, as mistakes cannot be easily corrected once a layer of ink has been applied. It is a time-consuming process, but the end result can be a beautiful, vibrant and layered print.
