Lino-cutting - continued explorations


Following on from my last post, these are some more lino-prints I have been working on. 

I am still experimenting with cutting techniques and skills, testing how fine I can go, whether my ideas "read" correctly, what happens when I overlap colours, etc. I started out working small, printing onto A5 paper, and am gradually moving up in size. 

I'm attempting to capture some of the sense of colour, light, movement and detail as experienced when under water.
