North East industrial prints

Back to the North East of England and two more views of landscapes that have now disappeared with the closure of the steelworks and coal mines. Both prints are from sketch book references that were gathered when I was at Art School in the 1960’s. The pit head is based on that of the Rising Sun Colliery on Tyneside near Newcastle and below that an image inspired by the huge slag and spoil heaps from the steelworks near the mouth of the River Tees.

Sunset Rising Sun colliery. Linocut in seven colours printed on 300gsm Fabriano Artistico Extra White HP in an edition of nine. Image size 210mm x 280mm. £120.00

Another day in paradise. Linocut in seven colours printed on 300gsm Fabriano Artistico Extra White HP in an edition of twelve. Image size 210mm x 280mm. £120.00
