First linocut and print

By 21 November 2019 November 27th, 2019 Linocut

I had this really simple idea for a linocut print. Some stylised hills. So I went for it and this is what happened.

Sketching out the initial idea in my trusty notebook.
Duplicating the image onto a piece of Lino.
Starting to carve out the spaces in-between.
How it looks with everything gone. Hopefully the patterns in the sky will gently come through to give the print grit and grime.
Final test print.

This this is the first thing I have every designed, carved out of Lino and printed. I really enjoyed the being in the process. So I’m going to more. Lots more.

We like your hair.
