A Songbird Soars

The print medium used to create this artwork is linocut, a form of relief printmaking, requiring the use of special tools to carve an image into the linoleum. The linoleum surface is then inked up with a roller and printed onto paper either by using a printmaking press or by hand. The image is transferred on to the paper and becomes reversed.Each block is printed separately and it is important for the integrity of the ink. This design has been printed using three spearate linocut plates.
