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! :>)
