Original linocut "Night owl", (dedicated to all "night owls" out there - I used to be one before I had my girl :)
Designed (as all of my linocuts) by myself, carved on linoleum and handprinted with highly-pigmented oil-based ink in Burnt Amber on a heavyweight 100% cotton rag paper Somerset. Once dry, I handtinted it with watercolor and embelllished with 23 ct genuine gold leaf. This is a small limited edition of 20 - there is also a saparate monochrome (uncoloured) edition - please see the listing here
This design was inspired by my love of "Arts and Crafts" and "Art Nouveau" movements in genenal, and my admiration for the work of Russian illustrator Ivan Bilibin (1876 - 1942), in particular. Bilibin used illustrative borders throughout most of his book illustrations and I tried to design my own border for this linocut.
Image size 30x20 cm, paper size appr 28x38cm. Printed on a heavyweight 100% cotton rag paper Somerset.
Hand-torn edges so can be framed mounted or unmounted (with exposed edges).
Numbered and signed by the artist (me🙂)
Because the image is inked, printed and coloured by hand there may be slight variations in tone and colour, making each print a unique work of art.
Will be shipped flat in a protective envelop, carefully wrapped in acid-free tissue and sandwiched between sheets of cardboard to ensure safe delivery.
