This limited edition linocut print shows a wide sweeping bay with a seaside town in the distance.
Inspired by a day spent walking a headland North of Bridlington. A bay where the light is forever inspiring. Swifts flit overhead as you walk on a summer's day gazing out from the cliff tops across the sea.
It is a modestly sized print considering the epic landscape it's depicting.

This limited edition print is a lino print, like all my original print collection at this time (Feb 2019). It has been through the press a total of five times. My intention was to make a four colour artwork, but felt it needed a final fifth subtle tone adding to the land and hand finishing to give it a polish. Original printmaking is a creative process so plans can change during the production of a print – this is the beauty of a process which is not dominated by machinery. While a printmaker working in sevewral colours, as I do, has to plan a print thoroughly, it's not possible to completely predict exactly how the inks will play with each other when printed one over the top of the other. As an artist I enjoy the challenge and unexpected creative possibilities this throws up
This print has a lot of texture to it. The texture is deliberate in this case. It's created by doing what's called a 'dry' roll. By putting very little ink on the roller, it creates a texture that is varied and interesting.
