A few days away have given me a bit of head-space and time to do a bit more experimentation- this time to have a go with a technique I last grappled with about 10 years ago- lino-printing. I really like this technique and, having dipped my toe back into using it again I can’t imagine why I haven’t done it sooner. I like its immediacy, accessibility and, most of all, the high-contrast, linear nature of the work you can do with it.
So my plan was to follow some exercises to get a feeling for what the different lino-cutting tools could do and to play around with the types of papers and backgrounds- watecolour, tissue, newsprint etc. Very enjoyable and exciting to me as to where it will lead.
