We’ve come to the end of the four classes now, and here are the results of the last two. I was keen to think about birds and trees, plus Judy showed us how to experiment on different kinds of paper (the leaf is on rice paper, and the trees below are on different shades of tissue paper).
Rob has a very different style, his images have much more impact than mine do (not that it was a competition of course!) and he put a lot more effort into certain aspects of cutting than I did. As you can clearly see, our interests also vary widely:
The last pic was taken with my cell phone, the blurriness is due to my shaky hand.
Now that we’re in September, with the summer market season about to re-open and much sewing and screenprinting to be done, I can’t spend any more time on linocut printing experiments, but I will definitely return to Judy’s studio next year. We met some great people, drank some great coffee, and expanded our creative horizons. What’s not to like? :)
