For my first piece back to lino carving, I think this turned out pretty decent. I’m not quite ready to get back to doing pointillism just yet, so I’m currently mulling over a new design for another carving, so stay tuned. 😊
Got a design all drawn out and ready to carve for my first lino carving in over a year. I’m excited and a bit nervous. Linoblocks are harder to carve compared to erasers so it’s easier to wind up with gouged hands and bloody fingers, so I’m hoping I’m not too rusty. But I’m excited because, well, I’m back to something familiar. With patience and a steady hand, I know how this will turn out. It’s good to step out of your comfort zone and try something different, like with the stamp carving, but it also feels good to come back to something you know. There’s nothing wrong with staying in your zone.
…now, if I could just come up with a name for this piece. Any suggestions would be appreciated. 😌
