Sandringham Estate Lavender

In spring last year I was asked by Peter, at Windett Design, to produce a linocut illustration for the packaging for Sandringham Estate's lavender products. The design is similar to my Lavender Hare design, but without the hare and with the iconic north-west Norfolk coastal landscape as the background.

The lavender products are now available in the Sandringham Estate shop (not yet in the online shop, hopefully they will be this year)

The design started life as a sketch which after approval by the design team, I carved into the lino block.

I inked the block with a dark colour mixed from Van Dyke Brown and Prussian Blue. I very rarely use black as I find the coloured inks much easier to work with.

The final artwork was going to be digital and in specific 'spot colours', so I needed a clean dark print to scan in black and white (greyscale)

This is the final digital two colour artwork I supplied for the designers to use for the packaging for the six different products made from lavender grown on the Sandringham Estate.
