Eden Project linocut print.
A3 in size.
A Handmade Lino Print of the Eden Project in Cornwall, the block was made on site “plien air” during the filming of sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2021, made in 4 hours plain air at the Eden project. I feature in series 7 episode 1.
The print is majority, lino print with the background and clouds added by hand printing with a texture fabric and clouds with dip pen in the same method as I used on the show. Each print is unique with variations in texture.
