Linoprinting in Brighton

Back at the Ink Spot press, I’ve been printing a couple more linocuts. Here’s the moment of truth. Photo shows the inked up lino and I’m revealing the image after it’s been through the press. Previously I printed the colour in stages and this is the final black image of Central Station, Amsterdam. Always the exciting bit!

Linoprinting

Whilst in Holland, I worked on a few linocuts. Now back in the UK, I went to the Ink Spot Press in Brighton and printed two of them.  It’s great because they have a hydraulic relief press. Press a button and it does all the work so you don’t have to! Now I can concentrate on mixing the inks and registering the artwork without building up too much of a sweat. Here are the prints ‘Cafe in Copenhagen’ and ‘Walking in the Jordaan’ drying in the rack. I’ll be including them in my exhibition in november.

Amsterdam screenprint

It’s been a busy few weeks at the Ink Spot Press, Brighton with many art students working towards their degree shows. Brings back memories! I’ve been editioning a screenprint based on my drawing of the Leidseplein, Amsterdam. I got into a colour frenzy!
