train II is a cyanotype and screenprint I made at Edinburgh Printmakers.
it's very loosely inspired by a short story by Ali Smith, cobined by the look of the old southern Belgian train carrriages.
It's one of my favourite prints, it won awards and all.. and I only have one left.

38x47,5 cm
edition of 3
Printed on Somerset soft white paper, 300gsm
The print is and signed and numbered

Cyanotype is a photographic process by which each sheet of paper is coated with a light sensitive emulsion. I used my drawing and various elements of maps to create a negative that was imprinted onto the paper by exposing it to UV light. This gives the image this incredibly deep blue. I also makes each print different: some of them darker, some lighter, some with small changes. They are, in fact, all unique in their own way. Yours might be slightly different in contrast than the one pictured here.
I also added to each of them a few layers of screenprint to add depth and details
