Floral Linocut

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.

  1. Lovely and just the right amount of background noise. Yup we’ve got summer here – sometimes it’s a bit too hot.
