I've been giving some thought as to what I would submit, and decided on working up a linocut from the watercolour below of Malham Cove. I'm also working a on a larger scale than usual, about twice my normal size. Mainly because the subject is a bit fiddly and the carving ought to be easier if I work bigger. Well thats the plan anyway!
Starting from the watercolour, I work up a cartoon to the size of the linoblock. Before simplifying the forms and colours. Based on the drawing I plan on using 7 colours; a warm and then a cool pale grey, blue, light green a darker grey, dark green and then a final dark. This may change as the cliff face might need another colour, and the stream in the foreground may require an extra blue.
Finally I get the first colour printed. So far so good.
