Millpool prints final stage

This is how they came out! Learned a lot, and I'm pleased with them although I still see them as an experiment. Encouraged to try more :)

A long process...

Several months ago I started work on an experiment, a reduction linocut of a local pond. It has turned out to have six colours (including the white of the paper), gradually whittling away the lino for each layer, and I have now got to the last one. Here you can see the proof for the previous colour in the top right, while I use it as a guide for revealing the trunks and branches of the trees. It may be a small image, but it is surprisingly complicated, and all good for getting my printing mojo back, as long as it works!

spontaneous flowers

A spontaneous 3" square pelargonium (geranium) linocut, drawn from life, carved and printed in a couple of hours this afternoon. Nice to just get on & not wrangle thoughts. Refreshing :)

Starting the skyleaf

This is the beginning of what I hope will be a competition / print exchange entry, and the first time that I've attempted a multiple-piece lino reduction print. So far so good, I actually really like this as it is already and there's lots more to do!
