Incoming Tide Lino Print by linocutgirl

Original, limited edition, lino print, The Incoming Tide at Dunstanburgh Castle, Northumberland, England. This is a wild place on the North Sea coast where the sea at high tide rushes to meet the ancient ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle. Linocutgirl has captured the wildness of the sea and the mystery of the ruins at this beautiful place. The print is made using the reduction technique which works by cutting away at the lino for each layer of colour. The result is that the print cannot be reproduced after the original run of 6 prints. The print is completely handmade using a hand burnishing technique.
