Linocut Print – A relief printing technique where lino is cut, inked and rolled to create an inverse relief print, generating the image as seen.
Printed in a soft sage green this print depicts the view into my allotment from my studio window. Our house was built by the Ancient Order of Forresters in 1892 and backs onto the Forresters Allotments. We are very lucky to have our plot next to our house. I love watching the robins looking for a bounty of worms after a dig. I have one who follows me around and often lands on my fork. In the print you can see a healthy crop of rhubarb, chard, leeks, carrots and brocolli.
This print has been reproduced as a greeting card in full colour for the Nature Trail Range at The ARTfile.
