Anyway, a couple of weeks back I tried my hand at lino cutting/printing at a half day workshop.
I was really surprised at how easy it was to control the cut. I decided to do a bee, as that is a favorite image of mine.
Here is the finished cut -
First print -
More prints on various papers -
We used coloured tissue paper, book and map pages.
Really good fun, and not bad for a first attempt. I will definitely be doing more.
Still visiting exhibitions and places of interest. One of the recent exhibitions I loved was the Van Gogh exhibition at Tate Britain. Fabulous to see so many of his works brought together in one place.
Some of my favourites ...
|Hospital at Saint-Remy|
|The Garden Gate|
The iconic Sunflowers looks so much better in reality than any photograph of it, so I've not included it here, but it has now become one of my favourites too!
The exhibition is on until 11 August, so do go if you can.
I'm not producing much artwork at the moment, as moving house is taking priority, so bear with me in this transition period!
