The limited edition linoprints on this website are produced by Lynette Weir are within the individual hand-printed and painted tradition of artist’s printmaking.
Each work is designed, printed and handcoloured by Lynette Weir and is individually handmade.
Below is a very basic quick outline of how linocut prints are developed.
The prints begin as drawings, then are developed into designs.
These designs are transferred in reverse onto a special piece of linoleum designed to be carved with lino-cutting tools. The ‘white’ sections of the designs are cut away with a variety of effects being achieved using different tools and techniques.
These lino blocks are then evenly inked using a roller with an oil based printing ink. A piece of paper is then carefully placed on the inked lino block. The print is made by the transference of the ink to the paper using techniques such as rubbing the back of the paper with a spoon or the use of a special press.
After the ink dries, each print is individually hand coloured using artists watercolours.
