"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Nearly finished

I have been working on this lino cut for the last week and its now almost complete. Just two colours to go; a dark green and then black. By the weekend I should be able to post the finished image.

I find it interesting, with these linocuts, that the image seems to emerge from behind a veil, as each new colour is added.

It's looking good by the way.

Yes I agree, thats part of the attraction in doing them. No matter how much planning you do first, until the paper is pulled away from the block you can't be sure what the image will look like.

I might with the next one post each individual colour pass as I print them. Then you can really see the image as it develops.
