I’m enjoying the lino printing. One thing I find hard is that it is slow. You need to take more time than I naturally do.
I thought my dancing nude would look better with no background at all, a la Eric Gill (an artist whose work is a problem to me. I think it is wonderful, but I find him abhorrent personally. Always a difficulty.)
I think she does look much better this way. Good thing as there is no going back when you have carved the block. This is on a light, Italian printing paper.
Then I thought I would try a second colour.
I like this too, on thin Japanese paper. The burnt sienna is just rolled onto a cut out bit of soft cut lino and hand positioned.
The problem is I will soon have a house full of prints.
