More progress....

More happenings on my latest piece... Do you recognise Frida Kahlo?

Completed lino print using a black textile pigment on the lino, and the edges scraped with a piece of cardboard.

Initial application of colour using fiber reactive dye which has the advantage of being transparent.

More colour added, some applied from the original lino cut (the borders) then direct painting of the fiber reactive dye. I have cropped the image to remove the blue masking tape.

More yet to do...

Overheard while visiting a local gallery, a teenager making the comment that "modern art has gone downhill"... Well, at least he had an opinion!

  1. I'm loving the linocut, I want to explore it further myself.
