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!
