‘Memories of May Hill’ – Limited Edition Giclée Print


‘Memories of May Hill’, Gloucestershire. Reproduction from the original collagraph monoprint, 2010. May Hill is a special place for the people of Gloucestershire and beyond. The pine trees, planted in 1887 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee, create an iconic image in the landscape, with a strong pull to them. The shape of the trees has been given various names over the year, John Masefield immortalised it as The Ploughman and his team in 1911, less poetically I have heard it referred to as the ‘nipple’ hill!  Whatever it’s name it is well worth a visit, far reaching views can be enjoyed from the top. We always play ‘Poddy or Ecky’ (depending where you are from) One, Two, Three in the trees. 

Twenty Five Editions 

Image size 146mm x 146mm plus border


These limited edition giclée prints are taken from original collagraph mono prints.  The collagraph plate is made using textures either pushed in, cut out or stuck on.  They are then inked and wiped by hand using oil based inks and printed on an etching press. The inking and wiping process means that that they are all unique. Sometimes I rework the image using oil paint, watercolour or pastel. All the originals have been sold. The giclée prints are limited to an edition of twenty five.  They are individually signed, numbered and dated.

All my limited edition Giclée Prints have the texture and feel of traditional watercolour paper. They are professionally printed on 310gsm German Etching mould-made 100% a-cellulose Art paper, that together with our Ultrachrome light fast inks, guarantees archival standards. Giclée prints are widely used in art galleries and museums where the quality colour reproduction is paramount.

This print is only available unmounted and will be delivered in a cardboard tube ready for you to frame and hang.
