Coastal scene print:‘Coast’
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've begun to make a series of coastal scenes similar to this, all in this modern style. This wall art is quite small. Despite this, it is a bold and striking linocut.
The printmaking technique used for this landscape art is called 'reduction cut' which uses only one block of 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.
