Deep in the Forest
Collagraph and linocut
28x38cm image size unframed
Printed on buff coloured Somerset 300gsm paper
Limited edition of 10 prints
This print was made using two plates, a collagraph plate made using found items from the Swinley Forest, and a linocut plate. I wanted to literally embed the forest into this print; the collagraph layer is fairly deeply embossed showing all the natural things I used in the plate: ferns, pine needles, grasses and the like. The black of the linocut plate is actually very deep green, mixed from blue and brown.
