Rachel Newling works with linocut to produce stunning artworks depicting some of Australia’s unique bird species and tropical flora and fauna. The Linocuts are hand printed on to handmade Japanese Washi paper and then hand coloured once the print has dried. Newling uses lightfast acrylic gouache paint and an artist’s proof print as her guide for the colours and tones applied to the print in the same edition, “there are always slight variations as my colouring is “painterly’ therefore each print in an edition is an individual.” Patternbank love her depiction of some wonderful looking Cockatoo’s alongside the native species of Australia. Newling grew up nr Padstow, Cornwall and attended an art school in London, before she made the big move to Australia.
