Weekly Sketch – Alhambra Garden View – 23/04/2017

At last a watercolour I feel okay with showing! I really like using watercolour, I often use it to colour drawings; but I’ve been trying to just use it on its own which I find a bit more difficult. Anyway I’m pleased with this A3 painting of steps from one green courtyard  leading down to another interior garden in the Alhambra Palace.

Proofing Alhambra Arches 3 – Multi-block Linocut

I have been proofing my three block linocut ‘Alhambra Arches’. Here are some progress pictures.

Another round of proofing new colour combinations; two blocks in and one block to go.

These colours make me think of butterscotch – yum!

I am thinking a dark red for the last block.
