I did a first colour pass on the pears last week, haven’t had a chance to blog until now. They’ll need a little tweaking here and there before they’re ready for glazing, but all in all they’re coming along nicely :)

Here’s the next lino design. It’s called “The girl who could read flowers”. I drew the original design for this way back in 2007 and it got put to one side because of the number of colours I was going to need to print. I’ve reworked it a little and think I can get the effect I want in 5 prints so I’ve transferred the design onto a new block and it’s a now all ready to be carved.

Here’s a final print. Lots of detail in this one so it took a long time to carve, but I think the end result has been worth it…I now find myself wanting to order some much larger lino blocks and make things even more complex lol ;) I think I’ll do a few more at this scale first though. Would be nice to get a small set together for Artweeks…Anyway, hopefully this is an image people will find both beautiful and curious…make of it what you will :)

Here’s the first colour print, bad photo, but it’s too dark and snowy to go out and take a good one. This now needs a couple of days to dry and then I can print the black over the top and that’ll be this one done :)
