more linoprinting experimenting

Night Beach, Linoprint with coloured pencil, 6x10 inches, Vivien Blackburn

This linoprint was done with softer lino - much easier to cut. Again I inked it up with oil paint with a brush. I actually like the brush marks, though I do intend to do some 'proper' prints from it with lino ink, which will give a velvety matte monochrome print, not at all like this one. I have a feeling I'm going to prefer to work this way - it's more painterly and each print will be different.

Coloured pencils were worked over it to give more subtlety and mystery to the night beach - well that was the intention anyway! :>)

I like this look, too, Vivien. A lot of texture. Be fun to see the other and how they compare.

This has a very tropical feel to it, Vivien. Think its the colour palette. I can imagine palm trees just off to the right there, white sand, mmmmm nothing like dreaming! I do feel that a good piece of art evokes many feelings.
