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.
