Work in progress: A pencil rubbing of a new linocut to see how it will print - the pollarded willows of earlier sketches shown here - done quite freely onto soft lino, about 5x5.75 ins. A bit messsy but it gives an idea of how it will print (I flipped the image on computer so this is how it will appear)
I've been really busy this week and have finished a large pastel of this willow but haven't had daylight time to photograph it yet.
I thought the image would maybe work in lino with the strong contrasts between light and dark. I'll experiment with rolling it traditionally, painting oil paint on and also with working into prints. I'm not sure how it will work out yet but I think it has potential.
c&c welcome :>
