The rainbow motif is prominent at the moment, representing hope for the future as we all cope with the restrictions that the Coronavirus pandemic puts on us. I recently found a little time to make a few little rainbow linocuts.
I couldn’t resist making my own rainbow print. The print is made up of three overlapping blocks, in red, yellow and blue. Where they overlap the colours blend to make orange and green. Artistic licence allowed me to forget about indigo and violet! The ink took days and days to dry, so I’m just getting round to dealing with them now.
I have given a few prints as gifts, and they have been really well received. As the usual galleries where my work is sold are not open, I’ve added some to my online shop here. If you would like one I can post it out to you, or someone you’d like to gift it to, anywhere in the UK. Prints will be wrapped in a clear envelope with some stiff mount board to protect it from bending. They are priced £20 including postage.
The prints measure 5″ x 7″ and fit in standard off-the-peg frames for that size. There are only 22 rainbow prints in the edition, so once they are gone, they are gone for good! Each print is numbered and signed. Click to go to my shop.
