I went on a 2 day beginners course earlier this year on creating linocuts. I think this sort of printing is just beautiful. My favourite artists are Angie Lewin, Robert Gillmor (amazing), Pam Grimmond, Thelma Sykes and Andrew Haslen.
Also, some of my favourite fabric artists use linocuts. Yet another area that I would love to get into - there just isn't enough hours in a day!
Anyhow, as a challenge I thought I would manipulate a picture to look like a linocut. Here is the original pic taken by my husband:
Here is my linocut impression:
Next time I hope to do the real thing!
