An etched cloud floating through a beautiful blue sky

Etched lino print:‘Mid-Blue’

Using lino etching to create a bold minimal work of fine art.

While modern in style it is nevertheless unmistakably rooted in printmaking tradition.

I'll freely admit this print was an experiment. I used a technique I'd not tried before. A caustic substance that disolves lino is painted onto the lino block.

It creates an usual effect at the edges and gives the cloud an organic shape.

  • Image size: 24cm x cm (9.5" x 11.75")
  • Edition size: 12
  • Medium: linocut
  • Method: lino etching
  • Passes through press: 2

The experimental nature of the print is why there are only 12 available. And despite the size of the print, it's a low price too. A deceptively simple bold design, I spent a lot of time carefully mixing and rolling the graduated blue background.

It makes a thoroughly modern artwork when framed.
