I finished the floral linocut I was working on. Now I have one more to complete of an aspen tree and I will be ready to finish my layered prints.
Here is the linocut completed. I inked it with blue ink and tried a test print to see if I needed to carve out more of the background.
Here’s the test print. I did carve a bit more from around the stems of the flowers but there will still be some background “noise” with the prints. I am really looking forward to finishing these. It’s taken me longer that I would have liked due to my work schedule being thrown for a loop but I will get there eventually. How is your summer going? It’s finally warmed up here and we’re enjoying some sunshine.
The linocut looks great! Good luck finishing the aspen. Look forward to seeing it and the overall project. It’s hot here and will get hotter this weekend. Have a good one.
Thanks Marilyn! The printing should be done next week.
Lovely and just the right amount of background noise. Yup we’ve got summer here – sometimes it’s a bit too hot.
Thanks Lyn! We have not had very much heat yet this summer. It’s been cool and rainy. Yesterday was our first hot day.
