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.

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.
