New Lino Cut Original Series - "Feeling Gratitude", Hawaii
I wanted to tell you how much I love to create these unique art works.
This piece is Inspired by "Only a (Kauai) surfer knows the feeling ".
It feels amazing to be surfing in the Hawaiian crystal clear ocean,
to the magical mountains view, under the warm sun.
I first draw the plan on my linoleum block.
The tricky part about it is that I have to think in terms of “negative” colors and lines.
I then start the super fun part of carving the block.
I need to be really careful not to cut your fingers and also be very precise.
Any wrong movement can create the wrong cut.
Once I carved most of it, I will run a test print.
It is always a magical moment to see how it looks like once printed.
I than go back to carving and perfect the art work.
I prepare the printing paper: I use heavy, high quality water color paper and paint with acrylic. I use different techniques, colors and styles.
It is impossible to guess which ones will come out epic once printed with ink.
Putting it all together: I mix the heavy ink on plexiglass with painter's knife
and apply it to my carved block with a special roller.
From every batch of 12 prints I do, only a few come out perfect and amazing.
These ones I frame and offer for sale !
Here is the stunning series 1.
Each piece is completely unique and unrepeatable.
Here they are ! I hope you will enjoy these beauties !
