|linocut , simple line drawing direct on the lino|
I started with the simplest of line drawings, hardly any marks at all (again, for being me;o) but I did have a clear idea in my head, that I wanted a real color fest!
|linocut , the first yellow...and it's yellow alright!!|
|Linocut , the first inking, you can see what has been cut away to remain white...|
Why do I go on and on about simple solutions.... well, I find on giving courses, that a lot of wonderful brave people, feel that linocut reductions are an uphill struggle... and I have to agree.... if you start out big....6 colors..... lots of eyes..... then yes, it will get you down.... who said it was easy.... so....
solutions, make them simple and make them nice to yourself. That way you enjoy the learning process as much as the result, find your feet, and then do faces.... learn your new skill, and then get real prickly about registration.... but don't let a little thing like registering a piece of paper get you down..... please!
|linocut , well ahead, hmmmmmm|
|linocut , it is bright..... just what I wanted!|
|linocut , cutting|
oh.... the registration was really good though.... ;o)) gotta be an optimist, right!!
