Drawing is important to keep the hand eye brain links active. I am not managing every day yet, but working on it! It doesn't matter what you draw and can be better approaching something you are not used to drawing!
I have started work in the first new print of 2021.
We have been walking most days from our village and I take photographs as we go.
I make a drawing based on the photo
Then reverse the image and decide what size it will be, then apply it to the lino.
I make pencil rubbings to check progress, quicker and easier than making an ink print
Now it is ready for the first test print!
Printing day today...
three test prints on newsprint to get the block printing properly and three test prints on heavier cartridge paper.
I have at last found my way to get an image on here!
I have started cutting a new block for this year's card, so far so good, and hopefully gift tags to follow.
