Carving a new linocut

Linoblock carving with templateToday I am working on carving a new linocut. I will just show you a section of the linoblock I am carving with the section of the design I am working from.

As usual I have drawn the image/design I want to work on and then developed that into a ‘carvable image’ by colouring it as a B&W design (on the right). This is then transferred to the linoblock in reverse and carved. I use the B&W image as a template to work from. I am not showing the full image at this point…you’ll have to wait, watch and see it as it evolves…

  1. Beautiful Lynette. I am just getting started with linocuts. I usually do watercolor illustrations for my books and articles, but I am wild for linocuts. Time for a new direction.

    Keep up your creative work,

    Sharon
