Linocut – oil based ink on textured Japanese paper. I chose this special paper because it so suited the subject and the contrast of the black ink on the beige and silver paper really lent itself to different pressure in the hand burnishing to produce the shadow effects.
I really enjoyed doing this one-I learned a lot from my first one. My design was influenced by BillyLee’s great Girl in a Landscape series. I am a big admirer of Billy’s work and love her attention to detail and the way she gets that dreamy feeling into her prints.
