Blue and green block print inspired by Harrogate Strays

Blue and green block print:
Summer Oasis

A landscape block print inspired by long summer days sitting in green open spaces surrounded by the blue shade of trees. This particular oasis exists in the centre of the town of Harrogate, Yorkshire, on what are called ‘The Strays’, but it could be a view of any English green space.

A reduction cut print, where the block is cut away a little more after each colour is printed. There were four passes through the printing press with blues and a bright sparkling green layered up to create a richly patterned and textured block print.
