I have long wanted to make a piece which features the pond I see every day on my walks around Rayleigh Mount - and this is the result!
What started off over a year ago as a single-layer linocut print has evolved into a two-layered cyanotype/linocut combination print. The challenge for me was to capture the details, delicacy and tranquility of this familiar place I have grown to love so much. In order to evoke the feel I was after, I decide to use a cyanotype image as the base layer for printing onto with my carved lino block. Much experimentation followed, which involved making numerous cyanotypes with different exposure times - and then bleaching/toning these prints to achieve a base layer which would not overpower the linocut printed top layer. Once this had been achieved, the challenge then was to mix a relief printing ink with a suitable translucency and colour so as not to overpower the cyanotype!
Many, many test prints later, I now have a tiny, varied edition of just four prints. The colours in each one are subtly different - I have included individual photographs to give an idea of the variations - so please bear this in mind when choosing your print :)
