Thanks for the words of encouragement on my first attempts at lino printing. I finally printed it last night and I'd have to say I'm not loving it. It was a fun (and time consuming!) process, but I think I need to work a bit bigger. This was an intricate first attempt! I also need to spend some more time on the design before the carving starts!
In my frustration at not loving the outcome of this project I decided to try my hand at some recently purchased oil pastels! I am trying to re-acquaint myself with some of the hands on techniques that I have not dabbled in since the computer took over my world!
Love the colours, but I need to work on the technique! And the content - AGAIN! Anyway, it was nice to just dabble for the pleasure of it again.
