Description

Donkeys on Weston Beach is a large colour linocut, approximately A3. It shows donkeys on the sandy beach at Weston-super-Mare in Somerset. It is Number 9 of a very small variable edition of 10.

Donkeys on Weston Beach is a hand-pulled colour linocut in water-based inks. The actual print is 38cm wide and 27cm high (roughly A3 – so fairly large). It is printed on acid-free paper and signed by me, and sent with a backing board and mount so that it can easily be framed in a standard A2 size frame.

Each print in the edition is inked up and pressed individually, resulting in some differences between each print – making each one a unique work of art.

International orders will be sent without a mount, rolled with acid-free tissue paper in a tube.

Weston-super-Mare is my hometown. It is a tourist resort on the Bristol Channel blessed with a wide sandy beach which allows lots of safe paddling for children. The only snag is that we have the second highest tidal range in the world – so a lot of the time the sea seems to be away on a day trip to Wales!

However, amusement is offered by donkey rides for children – a tradition that goes back over a hundred years. It is believed that William Mager first had the idea in 1886. The Mager family still run donkey rides on the beach to this day, though they were joined in the 1940s by the Trapnell family – who are also still going strong.
