Letter G Linocut Design – Third & Final Colour Printed

I have joined a linocut group on facebook, where members can sign up to print a linocut letter for different themed alphabets. I have chosen the letter ‘G’ for a freestyle alphabet, image size 15×15 cm. You can read more about how I came up with my design here.

Here is the final print, the third colour printed was raw umber. I did this as a reduction linocut, where you keep cutting away more material from the block to print subsequent colours. Overall I am pleased with the result, though I need to improve my registration technique as I only had 5 good prints at the end – available for sale here. Printed in Caligo relief water-based ink on specialist printing paper, Zerkall 210 gsm.
