Dog Rose linocut ideas




My photo of a dog rose above (taken on a dog walk - how appropriate!) and the plan & notes below for trying out a small linocut of either four or five colours. It will be pretty small, but how small will depend on how fine I can manage to cut the lino for the stamens and pollen in the centre of the flower. Watch this space...

Drawing clouds






Charcoal drawings of clouds that I made on June 18th, 2012, looking towards the Peak District from Birches Head, Stoke-on-Trent.

Leaf cards now done!








Now available at my Etsy shop: Etsy and my Folksy shop: Folksy

Green leaves



The leaf linocut has taken on a slightly different appearance - same plate, but printed in two different shades of green on different papers, and I'm a lot happier with these versions of it!
