My First Blog

Hi, I'm a printmaker new to the world of blogging. I'm looking for fellow printmakers and artists to share experiences (good and bad!). I specialise in linocut printing, both black and white and colour. I use traditional reduction process, starting with the lightest colour to the darkest cutting from the same piece of lino. More recently I have been using lino to create the patterns and shapes and then filling in colour with acrylic. This gives me a larger freedom of colours.

This is a linocut image of Southwold Lighthouse, Suffolk. I have used linocut for the black defining shapes and patterns and acrylic for the colours. I found this gave me flexibility to use many different colours.

This is a linocut image called Summer Rays. I have used a traditional reduction process here. It was a nightmare printing with so many different colours. After this print I started to experiment with different techniques.
