While most people have been preparing for Christmas I have had other things on my mind.  My printing press now at home has to earn its living.  I began with a simple three coloured reduction image. Since my recent workshop the procedure was fresh in my mind.  I intend to do a series of lino cuts in this way using different inks and papers. In this way I hope to make some educated decisions when making more sophisticated designs.

For this I used Zerkall paper and the primary colours in Caligo safe wash relief ink.  

So while this artist’s proof is not going rock any boats or pay for the press; the little press and  little know-how has given me the opportunity to be constructive and have fun!

    Good for you. I love your first print. Actually,, I usually do go for the artist’s proof when I buy prints. I like the idea of their being one of a kind and feel they still carry some of that spirit of adventure and the quest the artist goes through in trying to find the final solution. Judy
