Firstly a couple of simple prints done using the same block.
Linocut. 110mm x 150mm
I had been to that well known stockist of artist materials "Poundland" and bought a load of small brown paper bags, originally these were being sold as bags to put packed lunches in for childrens school dinners. I wanted them to put greetings cards and small prints in when I sold them. To smarten the bags up I printed this simple design onto the front of them all. Loathe as I was to waste a print on a "give away" I also printed a small edition of 12 onto some Hosho paper. Using the same block I also made a two colour linocut which I printed as a much larger edition of 24 also on Hosho paper. Actually my largest edition to date. I don't usually print more than 10 in an edition.
2 colour reduction linocut. 110mm x 150mm
These were pretty simple and didn't take much time to do so I came up with something else, slightly more complicated.
7 colour reduction linocut.
247mm x 150mm
Edition of 16.
Based on drawings made a couple of years ago of one in the River Nith in the centre of Dumfriess.
