Description: A reduction linocut using three different colours of ink. The first, a very subtle beige colour which you can see on the detail of the tree. The second, a gradation of mustard to yellow ochre. The third a chocolatey brown, which is the final darkest colour you see. Using Lawrence oil-based relief printing inks on Zerkall printmaking paper. It is from an edition of 16 and is signed and titled. The linocut was developed from a sketch of a gnarled old tree just outside Hadleigh in Suffolk. It had ivy vines wrapping themselves round the branches and the light shining through on either side gave it a fairy-tale like quality.
