"Gratitude"

Location: Douglas, Isle of Man
Technique: linocut
Social Media: @issyvivi
Print Number: 802

Two inks used: Metallic Copper and Orange oil based inks. I use cut paper and collage in image making and took this technique to a Lino-cut; it is actually a Rubber-cut. It needed to be simple as it was the first time to create a print and one so small. It was a challenge to achieve some flatness and density with the metallic ink. The tearing of the paper to create a ‘deckled’ edge turned out to be too destructive for the finished prints - so these were trimmed with a blade.
