"Crescent Head" 2018 - hand coloured
An original linocut artwork by Fiona Watson.
From a limited edition of 15 prints.
This composition is one straight from my phone, taken on a road trip holiday from the Gold Coast to the Central Coast of NSW and back. I had never visited Crescent Head before, but it came highly recommended. I walked from the car park, over the golf course, and was completely blown away by the stunning landscape presented before me! The 'beach' was in fact a beautifully sculpted cove of smooth sea-tumbled rocks. Quite surreal. Surfers also travel from around the world to experience the breaks at the Crescent Head Surfing Reserve.
A block this size takes approximately 20-30 hours to draw and carve, and then another 4 hours or so to print the edition by hand - no press involved! :)
Some of the edition are then selectively hand coloured using artist's water colour inks.
Paper size - 50cm x 65cm
Image size - 35cm x 45cm
