back to lino

The kiln shed gets closer,but the work is slow...there is so much else going on at the moment we end up too tired to do much..but there is a little progress.

Meanwhile I've picked up my lino cutting tools again, with the added incentive of trying some new Italian tools...not the Pfeil make that many printers rave about, but these are a massive improvement on the basic red plastic handle with interchangeable blades. Now I can work for more than a few minutes without hand ache!

Next step will be on  300 gsm card rather than cheap 80 gsm A4 paper, but that is good enough for proof prints.

Then after that I must look for some more inspiring trees to draw!
