Edge of Salt Marsh 3 is a hand-printed woodcut. It is an original print and the quirks of hand-printing makes each woodcut different.
The Edge of Salt Marsh series is a variable edition because I have printed each one with a different colour palette. All the prints are also hand-finished so they are “one-offs”.
The free-flying ducks printed outside of the frame are a feature of this series of woodcuts.
Do you know how I printed Edge of Salt Marsh 3?
- Firstly I carved 3 woodblocks (in reverse).
- I began by inking up an uncarved block for the background colour.
- Once this had dried I inked up the first carved woodblock.
- I printed this on top of the background colour before repeating the process with the remaining carved block.
So for Edge of Salt Marsh 3 I used a total of 4 woodblocks with fade-resistant inks on acid-free paper.
