“Calan Mai gwyrdd” limited edition reduction lino print


“Calan Mai gwyrdd” – A stylised original lino print of a mountain with a tree in front of it, surrounded by swooping swallows. A stream loops around the tree. Inspired by the swallows’ return at Beltane.

This is a reduction print: the blue (a tint of pthalo blue) was printed first, and then extra lino cut away where the blue remains, and then the yellow on top of the blue to create green a week later when the blue had dried. Every print will be very slightly different – registration (the lining up of the two colours) shifts around a little with mounted lino blocks – please see the close ups for the extent of the shifting. This is all part and parcel of linoprinting!

This print is available in a different colourway.

Printed onto thick Fabriano art paper. All vegan materials. Limited edition of 11, signed, numbered and dated. Printed in my studio on a Rollaco Cachet etching press in 2021.
