Here's my latest linocut print, a very simple design...
Treetop rooks, printed area 4" by 6"
My inspiration came from a view I saw from the car window, as we were
driving through the countryside on our way to the Farmers' Market one
day a few weekends back. There was a line of trees on the far side of a
field, and perched at the very tips of the branches was a large flock of
rooks - they were strung out along the tops of the trees like black
bunting. When I got back home I did some sketches, and based the design
for the print on these. This was great fun once again, especially as I tried out a new technique for me - a blend:
Teresa, who kindly sent me an 'easycarve' soft lino block to play with!
This will be my last post for 2012 - may I wish you all a very happy and productive 2013! See you in the new year!
