View of the House

This is an original hand printed and hand carved lino print of a little hidden house situated in the valley of mountains, it is shaped inside an arch as if peering through a window from across the river.

The sun is setting behind the mountains and is casting a warm blue shadow across the landscape.

Limited edition print of 50!
Printed on lush Somerset 250gsm acid free paper.
21cm x 29.7cm (A4) in size so it will be easy to find a fitting frame for this print!

To make this sunset effect I carved a separate lino block that was the same size and shape as the original arch block, I lay out blue ink, yellow ink and red ink next to each other and added white to the line of the colours, when using the brayer to roll out the inks it mixes these colours together and eventually creates beautiful sunset shades from blue/grey to orange/red.
Once I have printed the sunset background and it has taken a day or two to dry, I then used the brayer to roll out a mix of blue, red and a small bit of orange to create the dark grey/green colour of the main illustration. The second block is then carefully registered so that it prints in the same coloured area.

As each piece is hand printed there will be slight differences from one to another, making them all unique!
