Further experiments with the lino plate. The graphic clean print is all very well but I do like painterly expressive marks. So these are done inking up the lino with oil paint and a brush. This means that the colours can be more varied and the brush marks incorporated into the finished piece.
Neither of these are finished. They need a little more work to pull them around but I can see where I can take them.
On the one below, on black paper, I roughly painted a background and then printed wet in wet oil paint. Again, it needs more work.
