Linocuts




I've been working on some very simple linocuts for the first time, just because it feels good to do something real. I'll post some photos of the prints when I've made them. I rarely 'design' anything before I make it, so it's interesting to see what happens when one of these images is in translation; I tried not to get too hung up on the details because for now I'm just curious to see how the first one will print. I found I already owned some black, white, cerise, orange and viridian inks (and their amazing names!) so looking forward to these colours leading something new.
