My 200th Post! – Purveyors of Print Exhibition

Pleased that for my 200th post I can share that I am excited to have my Peru Series of linocut prints in this exhibition ‘Purveyors of Print’ at Xylonite Arts, 12 Winchester Road, London E4 9LN from 08 April to 09 May 2015.

Here are the 4 linocuts that made it:

Peru Bug Editioned

At last my Peru Bug linocut has dried, and I have editioned them and they are now available for sale via Etsy & Folksy. Sometimes I think I should give water based inks a go; but when I have used them in the past I just don’t quite like the look of them compared to oil based inks. I love using oil based inks, I know they aren’t as environmentally friendly and there is the issue of drying time. If any of you can recommend some water based relief ink brands, that you think highly of, I will definitely try some of them out.

And Finally – Peru Bug Linocut Printed!

I have finished printing in a dark green the last print in my Peru Print Series; linocut prints inspired by designs and symbols on a Peruvian textile that I bought in the USA years ago. The last photo shows the green colour in the print better than the other two images. You can read about the three other prints I made here. This linocut will match in form the third linocut; Peru Standing Bird. This one is called ‘Peru Bug’, what do you think?
