Remembering sunnier days abroad; permanent marker pen drawing of a courtyard garden at the Alhambra, wish I was there now.

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.

Proofing Alhambra Arches 2 – Multi-block Linocut

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

I have finished some final prints of the lime green, purple and blue combination.

I have printed the first block in yellow; then thinking orange and reds for next blocks.

I have also printed the first block in ochre; then thinking darker ochre and reds for next blocks.

Proofing Alhambra Arches – Multi-block Linocut

I have been proofing my three block linocut ‘Alhambra Arches’. Here are some progress pictures; I did proof print wet on wet ink for the last block, which doesn’t get the best results, but for proofing it is fine – I couldn’t wait! I intend to do some more colour combinations as I’d like to print a varied colour edition of 30 prints. I think I will do three sets of 10 prints of a certain colour combination. I am still thinking on whether to make some adjustments to the last block.

I would love to hear your thoughts on these.
