Friendly little Red-Breasted Nuthatch on 6×8” paper.
The clean, graphic look of this nature print lends itself equally well to minimalist interiors as well as other classic decor themes. The perfect accent to your art collection and home or office space.
The Uniqueness of Linocut Prints:
The linocut process is entirely different than a digital print; with linocut there are naturally occurring variations that make each piece a truly original work of art. The process starts similar to woodcut, the design transferred or drawn onto the soft cutting surface. Negative spaces are removed, and the remaining surface carries the shapes that will be transferred. A roller (brayer) is used to roll out the ink to the right consistency, then the same roller applies the ink to the block’s surface. A paper is applied on top, then pressure is applied firmly and evenly to transfer the ink to the paper. After the paper is lifted, the print is left to dry, to be signed.
These prints were made with Speedball black water-soluble block printing ink on Strathmore 400 series Mixed Medium Paper (vellum surface)
This is a limited edition print. Photo is of print 9/50 but a different print from this edition may be mailed. This means that there are only 50 prints available for this composition. This edition is titled “v.2” meaning “version 2.” “Version 1” was a single edition print (1/1) and contained more of the linoblock than this edition. Other than these two editions no further prints will be made using this block.
