This print is an unframed, handmade original. It is part of a limited edition of 90, printed by me on a press in my Dartmoor studio.
The paper is Somerset printmaking paper, made at St Cuthbert’s Mill at Wells, and the inks I used were Caligo Safewash printmaking inks.
Paper size: 49cm by 45cm
Image size: 33cm by 29cm
I carved the trees using linocut tools and made the textured foreground using wood engraving tools to make thousands of tiny marks.
This image is based on a real group of trees on the way to the sea in South Devon. I liked the mix of trees. The Monterey pines are often found near the coast in Devon and Cornwall. When setting off to walk the stunning coastal path, the beautiful shapes of these trees are a sign I’m nearly there.
Because all my prints are made by hand the colours and tones may vary slightly from the image shown here.
