“It is impossible to explain creativity. It is like asking a bird “How do you fly?” You just do.”~ Eric Jerome Dickey

This is a 15 x 15cm linocut – my second ever reduction print. The first layer is a graduated roll with blue ink and extender, to give a transparent effect. The three subsequent layers are light grey, dark grey and black printed with the same block, with cutting in between. I lost one print due to poor registration, but I am reasonably happy with the finished product. A better result could be achieved with a printing press and higher quality inks, but the school holidays are good for practicing the technique at home.
