Edge of Salt Marsh 3

Original prints - variable edition woodcut - Edge of Salt Marsh 3

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.
