Fox linocut, the finish

Hi all

Here are the final stages of the fox linocut. First I carved the block some more to add a russetty colour, to define the fox's body shape more clearly. Then the final dark colour was added via a stencil - I cut the shapes from a piece of acetate, and dabbed the ink through using a cotton bud.

So there we have it - a snowy foxy print, inspired by an encounter with a fox on a snowy day. Haven't decided on a title yet though...
