7 Colour Reduction Linocut. 270mm x 180mm. Edition of 8 Prints.
Prints 1 to 4 are printed on my usual Winsor and Newton Cartridge paper, prints 5 to 8 are printed on a batch of Hosho paper. Which when I last used it, I had a lot of trouble with it sticking to the block and then tearing. This time I managed to print on it without any problems. I still don't have enough confidence in it though to use it for an entire edition.
With the final dark the Lapwing print is finished and I can start on the second of my prints based on the theme of 'the dance'. The next print will have a much different atmosphere, slower movement and hopefully a calmer and more contemplative feel.
