Preparing to print

A daily drawing doesn’t have to be in a sketchbook. This is a lino block, laid out for a print of the Bessie Ellen West Country ketch setting sail.

It will be carved away in several stages to create the final printed image. I have an idea in my mind of how it will look, but it is very unlikely to end up that way. The cut away areas here will remain white throughout.

 

These are the first two printed layers, establishing just the basic cloud tones. Impossible to judge how good the finished print might be at this stage.
