The Plantain

An old medicinal plant, the Hoary Plantain can be found everywhere – meadows, pasture, gardens and waysides – always passed by but rarely noticed for their beauty. This one stood out from a tall verge – I loved its delicate crown of petals, dancing and fluttering in the breeze, and just had to immortalise it through carving, print and colour.

This is the original Linoblock as used to create the Reduction Linocuts – The Plantain (see Gallery).

  • Hand carved and hand coloured in Prussian Blue/Cyan with 22ct Gold Leaf
