Linocut is a technique combining the fine craft of printing and its rich details with the possibility of an uncomplicated duplication process. Nonetheless every print is a unique piece with its own, individual character. While the ink might be rich and opaque in one print it can be light in another giving the paper texture the chance to shine through.
The outcome varies depending on the choice of colour and printable surface. It is easy to produce a wide variety of combinations for the same motif. Comparing the results helps in finding the best combination for each design. I love the aroma of the paint, the feel of the different papers and the smacking sound of the colour roller on the glass palette.
