Venturing into linocut printing

A few weeks ago, spurred on by someone else, I started to play with linocut block printing. So far it’s going really well if you take the fun factor into account. Am seeing improvements each time, although still working out the right amount of ink to apply.

The biggest lesson is knowing when to stop cutting.

I’m using my old photographs and selecting those that don’t require too much detail while I’ve still got my L Plates on.
