Another Great Day at Portobello Road Market May 20, 2014 11:13

Thank you once again to our customers at Portobello Road Market yesterday, and especially our American visitors. Sold one print which will be making its way to Seattle!

We had a magnificent sunny day- we were so lucky to get good weather. Bought some yummy strawberries from our trading neighbour, who I learnt had been trading there for seventy years.

Keep checking the website for future dates at Portobello.

Colour Reduction Lino Print Process February 08, 2013 12:59

Colour reduction lino print process: how is it done? Well, first of all you draw your image on to the lino tile and then cut away the first lines, which if you're printing on white paper, will be white!

 

My first colour for this print was yellow, so now I have several yellow and white prints.

Using the same lino tile, I then cut away any areas I want to remain yellow, because I'm going to ink up the tile in another colour, this time green and print over the top of the yellow prints.

I've now got lots of yellow and green lino prints. But I need blue on the image - for the blue tit obviously - so I now wash the lino and cut away all the areas I want to remain green. There's not much of the lino tile left by now! I then ink up the tile with blue and print on top of the yellow and green prints. It's quite a long process, because I have to make sure the ink is dry in between colours and sometimes that can take several days!

Et voila !

 

All I have to do now is sign and number them!
