Linocut: Woman in a Hat

More linocut! This is actually my fourth linocut design; the third needs a few rogue flecks of lino removed and so is waiting to be printed again. I’ve been practising printing onto computer paper as its smooth surface is good for getting a clear initial print, which is useful for checking whether the design needs any tweaking. It’s also cheaper than using up all of my decent cartridge paper while I work on getting the printing process right – you can still see a few patchy spots in the picture above. It’s been interesting to experiment using different kinds of paper to find out what effect their different textures have on the print produced. More to come!
