A Full Day of Printmaking / Lake Tahoe Linocut
It's beautifully sunny outside but I've been looking forward to a full day of printmaking - experimenting with new materials and techniques. So today I'm printing a Tom Killion-inspired Lake Tahoe reduction linocut with several more colors to go after the ink is dry later this week. It took a while for my lino block to get seasoned but after the first ten runs through the press I started getting some nice prints.
Tonight, I'm starting a small Mt. Tamalpais woodcut with a piece of Lauan. Now I'm heading off to get a syringe to hold linseed oil (will that work?) and some more clothing pins for hanging paper. I'm on a roll.
