Descending Blencathra - 11 colour silkscreen landscape print
Blencathra, also known as Saddleback, is the 14th highest mountain in the northern Lake District. It is said the name means ‘the summit of the seat-like mountain’ in the ancient Old North tongue.
This is a view from the southern edge, after descending from the summit and looking along the impressive rock formations along the ridge to the east. Two figures can be seen in the distance.
The simplest graphic depiction of a mountain might be the triangle, a shape that became a repeating motif as I created the artwork for this print. There is also a letter ‘A’ hidden away in the rocks, in memory of a friend whose ashes are scattered on the fell top.
'Descending Blencathra' is an 11 colour screen print, hand-printed with water based inks on 300gsm, acid free, Canaletto Velino art grade paper.
Each print comes with a map & signed certificate of authenticity.
It's a very limited edition of 30 and is numbered, titled, signed, and embossed at the bottom.
It is approx 407 x 577mm in size. (For reference, this will fit inside an A2 frame with room to add a mount.)
This print is sold unframed, and is sent carefully wrapped in acid-free tissue, then bagged and rolled inside a sturdy cardboard tube.
UK Postage is included in the price of this print.
SPECIAL NOTE: in an effort to encourage people to explore and care for amazing outdoor spaces, anyone who visits Blencathra, and after purchasing a print and sends me a photo to show they found the view depicted in this artwork will receive something special in the post.
