Martins flit overhead while walking round the glistening bay

Bridlington Print:
Walking the coast

This Bridlington print shows the wide and sweeping bay the seaside town sits on, on the East Coast of Yorkshire. The light is forever inspiring and I spend a lot of time on the two beaches, each with their own character, as well as at Flamborough Head to the North.

It is a modestly sized print considering the epic landscape it's depicting.

  • Image size: 13cm x 35cm (5" x 14")
  • Method: linocut
  • Edition size: 25
  • Passes through press: 5
  • Paper: Magnani Litho 310gsm White

This 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. While as a printmaker I have to plan a print thoroughly, because I'm usually dealing with more than two colours, I cannot predict exactly how they will play when printed over the top of each other. As an artist I enjoy the challenge and unexpected creative possibilities this throws up

This coast lino print makes a fine pair when displayed with "Seabird Cliffs"

I also have an oil painting, titled "Walking the Headland" inspired by the same walk (and more in the to-do list!). I'm always adding to my collection of Brid and surroundings inspired art.
