Rainstorm Out At Sea is a limited edition linocut print by Mark A Pearce. The strong blues contrast the light yellow tones to create an atmospheric piece, perfectly capturing the appearance of the sun after a stormy afternoon.
Mark A Pearce handprinted linocuts available to buy online and in our art gallery. Mark Pearce grew up in Cumbria where he trained at Carlisle College of Art. Mark Pearce then studied at The Norwich School of Art and after a successful career as a graphic designer in London, Mark moved back to Cumbria in 2006. He works from his Ravenglass home, creating vibrant images using a variety of media: Painting with watercolour, gouache, pastels and oils, and as a printmaker his techniques include reduction lino/woodcuts, dry point, etching and carborundum printing. Mark A Pearce says, “It’s all about noticing things”. Here in Ravenglass the mountains almost reach the shore, and the three rivers meet to form a perfect estuary, so there is a huge variety of landscape to notice. I make pictures to share the excitement of a light effect, a composition or a colour combination. I particularly enjoy the discipline of multi colour printing; it forces me to think precisely about the nature of what I see and how to put it across. To quote Henry Moore, “Art should help everyone to enjoy and appreciate the world
