Seascape lino print:‘Headland’
This sea inspired linocut art is one of many seascape lino prints here on this website.
The sea and coast is a constant inspiration to me. I've made quite a few seascape linocuts as part of my landscape art collection. I'm now adding paintings of the sea and coast, too.
Many of my seascape linocuts have been picked out for special mention in art show reviews. My first two sea prints sold out before I'd had chance to make new seascape lino prints – I've put this right since!

This linocut print was actively developed during its production. Contrary to its appearance, there was little pre-planning involved. This is not so usual now I'm a more practiced printmaker.
The resulting seascape is a highly characterful three block lino print, with much to commend it.
The first ‘key’ lino block was hand inked for each print in the limited edition. The final, third, block added a subtle semi-transparent and graduated layer. This last layer of ink made this original print sparkle - which is not captured by the illustration.
