Matted 4X4.5" linocut print with coloured pencil eyes. Approximate matted size is 10.75X11.25"
This is an original hand pulled linocut print in a limited edition of 10. It was created using professional archival artist materials only. The yellow in the owl's eyes was added with artists coloured pencil. The print is in a 3" mat but is unframed.
I spent 27 years in the North Peace Region of British Columbia, Canada. The small brown Northern Saw-whet owl is a local resident. This one sat on a branch in my artist friend's tree and allowed her to get lots of photos, which she gave to me! I was thrilled to use it to create this lovely print, which has been one of my most popular. I hope you like it!
This is a great way to turn favourite drawings into original prints! Here’s how I create a single colour linocut print:
1. I draw a design and carve it into a linoplate
2. I ink up a brayer and roll the ink onto the plate
3. I centre art paper over the inked plate
4. I run it through a printmaking press
5. I pull off the paper and, voila! A print appears!
