Some days, the snow is soft and slippery, the air is warm with the promise of spring, and the trees sparkle with rainbow-beads of melting snow. Those are the days you stay out on the mountain until the sun goes down. Evening Glow was inspired by a day like that.
This print was hand-pulled using water-soluble, environmentally responsible inks.
Evening Glow is a limited edition print entirely made by hand.
What is a hand-pulled linocut print?
After making an initial drawing, I hand-carve a linoleum block. I then squeeze ink out onto my palette, roll it onto the block using a hard paint-roller tool, and then carefully press the paper down onto the block. After the ink layer dries (2 to 7 days), I carefully repeat the process for each subsequent layer of colour.
Each print is unique and there will be slight variations within the edition – that’s part of the charm of linocut printmaking. You can see the hand of the artist in every print.
