A bold ocean linocut inspired by the movement of big waves in deep water.
Rich dark ocean blue and green subtly mix in this lino print (not captured by the illustration). The first two colours were applied by hand to the first plate. Semi-transparent inks overlaid suggest the fine mist boiling foam generates. This is one of the largest ocean linocuts I am able to put through my printmaker's press right now.
A small edition of just 12 impressions, consisting of art prints with much individual character.
Selected for display in Ferens Open 2010, Hull, Yorkshire, UK.
