New Lino Cuts

My summer has been a mixture of taking it easy and creating some new lino cuts.

I began 12 new designs, yep 12, and have finished 5 of them. All are using the reduction method, where you use one block to create all your colour layers. Below are progress images of one of the finished designs, Pilea Peperomioides or as it is more commonly known, Pancake Plant.

Rolling up for the first layer

First layer, a bright lime green

After cutting out the centre of the leaves the next layer is printed

The leaves are cut away and a darker green is printed

Final layer. Stems are cut away and the inside of the pot is inked up and printed
