‘I love to look at figurative movement; consequently sports are often featured because of the dynamic shapes and action, but equally a crowd of rush hour people leaving a train, people browsing a market or a dance hall crowded with figures are wonderful inspiration. the nature of linocut allows for the use of lovely flowing lines and dramatic overlap of colours which i feel fits very well into the subjects i am drawn to.’ Paul can now be seen in galleries across the UK. He has worked with a number of clients including National Trust, Bloomsbury Publishers, RSPB, Wetherspoon's, Art Angels, David Watson. PRINT TECHNIQUES My lino work uses a multi block reduction method, each colour is cut and printed from a separate piece of lino. After much planning, each colour design is carefully transferred to the lino and then cut out. The whole design is then proofed and a print is created. This can then be used to adjust any problems in the registration and design. Next using oil based printing inks, a final edition is printed. Every print is an original hand pulled by the artist not a mere copy. The final prints are therefore Original artist’s prints. I choose a heavy weight 300gsm paper which is hot pressed for a smooth surface to produce my editions on. The purchase of a 130 year old press has allowed a greater range of sizes to be printed. Each print will take several months to develop, cut and print in an edition of between 40-60 depending on the size and variations.
