Simon's Seat, Yorkshire - Silkscreen Landscape Print
£35.00 / Sold Out
Simon's Seat is a well-known prominent outcrop of millstone grit near Bolton Abbey in Yorkshire.
I love the folklore and mythology of natural landmarks and there seem to be some different stories floating around regarding the origin of the name. Some say it's named after ancient druids who followed Simon the Sorcerer, and others suggest it's more simply named after a local shepherd lad named Simon. Whichever is true, it's a beautiful landmark, and can be seen for many miles around, poking out of the heathery hillside.
This image started out as a smaller, simpler pen & ink illustration, which I always wanted to expand into a screenprint. Taking the composition of the original illustration, I worked in some more detail and designed the colour separations in order to create this 4 colour print which I hand printed with water based inks on 260gsm, acid free, recycled Context paper.
It's 7" square in size, so while it's not as big as some of my other prints it's easier and more affordable to frame. It's also an open edition print; signed with year & title in pencil at the bottom.
This print is sold unframed, and is sent flat, reinforced in sturdy cardboard.
