Linocut Prints Doug Kemp Fine Art

A linocut is a relief print that is produced like a woodcut but that uses lino as the surface from which the design is cut, carved as a template that is used for the printing

In making a Linocut basically, you take your design and use the negative space to paint the same picture over and over. It is an easy and effective method.

There are two methods:

1) Single block Linocut Prints. Here an initial cut pattern is printed for the whole (generally very limited) edition as the first part of the required image, and then the same block is further cut and printed again, registered with the original first printing.

This may be repeated a number of times. The final required image is therefore built up and the edition is limited to the number of prints made at the start and the subsequent cuttings since a constituent part of the image is lost each time. Picasso is known for using this method.

2) Multiblock Linocut Prints. This is a more common technique, used by many artists. A separate block (commonly 3 to 5) is cut for the different colours in the required image and printed sequentially.

A downside is that there has to be careful registration of the blocks at each stage and consideration of any colour upon a previously laid colour might change the overall effect. Another issue is that there might be some slight changes in colours, even within the same edition, due to differential inking effects.

This can still occur in the Single block method but generally to a lesser extent. Proof checking is critical but some slight variation, even within the same edition, is acceptable and might be considered desirable by some people by getting an unique (ish) copy.

A major benefit of Multiblock is that many different colour versions of the same image can be made and account for all tastes.

Making Linocut Prints

A Short History Of Making Linocut Prints: Linoleum was first invented in the 1860s, but wasn’t used as a medium for printing until the early 1900s where it was first used for making patterns on wallpaper!

Many artists… including Pablo Picasso & Henri Matisse have used linocuts as a medium, and today it is considered a respected art form in its own right, however, the benefits of using Giclee printing in terms of durability, quality and ease of use have seen the use of linocuts decline in recent years.

Peaches

Peaches. Acrylic Painting on Paper 24×24 Inches. Painted in the mid 1990s. Luke found this hidden gem in a roll of paintings. Doug was quite taken aback, as at the time of painting (25 years ago) he didn’t much like it. On reflection he has changed his mind.

Artist Print Types – The Different Formats

Giclee Artist Prints

Spelt correctly, Giclée is a French word for spray (little squirt!). This is a digital printing process in which a dedicated type of ink-jet printer is used with specialist inks to produce a high quality Art print. As an artist, I feel a Giclée print produces a better finish than other types of modern artist printing formats.

Linocut Artist Prints

A Linocut is a relief print that is produced like a woodcut but uses lino as the surface from which the design is carved as a template used for the printing. In making a Linocut, basically your design uses the raised (uncarved) areas for the different inks to print the same picture over and over.

Silkscreen Print Collection

Creating screen prints – The inks are forced through a mesh screen onto the printed surface. This enables certain areas of the screen template to be made impervious to the printing ink, in effect creating a stencil. The ink that is able to pass through forms the printed image.
