I’ve now printed an edition of fifteen of my beach huts print. I put the print together with some pretty vibrant colours in the end. Maybe I was thinking of some of the Summer sunshine we were all enjoying when I first started working on this linocut. Hope you like it. I’m happy to say you can now buy one of these from my site in my shop for £20 which will help me buy some ink and paper to work on some more prints.
I’ve been working on drafting up a plan for my next linocut print. Here’s the illustration of some beach huts I’ve drawn up which I’m going to start cutting and printing soon. I’ve always loved Angie Lewin’s work, this is a bit of a homage to her work. She’s amazing and you can check out her site here (it’s well worth a visit). Once I’ve printed a few of these I’ll be adding them to my shop to buy if you want one and I’m also planning to give a few bits of artwork away including a few of these prints soon. You know I love a good competition!
I’ve taken a few photos of my linocut as I go along. In my eagerness to get on with it I did make some colossal mistakes. I managed to miss one of the roofs off one of the huts and I started cutting the wrong side of my carbon copied markings on my lino. I’m going to put together a step by step guide about how to fix mistakes when you cut lino. Watch this space for more information coming soon.
