A deceptively simple stylish coastal scene print. A reduction-cut linocut in a modern contemporary style.
I love the coast, whether rocky, sandy, cliffs or beaches. Clearly others share this love too, because this lino art has proved very popular. I'm planning to make a series of coastal scenes like this, all in this modern style and at various scales, large, medium and small. This wall art is quite small. Despite this, it is a bold and striking linocut.
The printmaking technique used for this view is 'reduction cut' which uses only one lino. The single lino is cut away a little more after each colour is printed - so there is no room for mistakes! A traditional technique – a contemporary coastal scene.
