"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."

Starting a new Linocut

I've put the illustration project to one side for the time being and started a new linocut landscape. Being somewhat impatient, I printed it in the evening under a dodgy artificial light instead of waiting for daylight. As a result the colour is a little darker than I planned but hopefully this shouldn't matter too much.
It is shown in the photograph next to the block, already cut and waiting for the next colour to be printed.
