Printing Pear Pop Linocuts

At last I’ve been able to start printing some new images this year; these are the first prints of ‘Pear Pop’ linocut with chine–collé (collaged paper), companion pieces to ‘Apple Pop‘ linocuts from last year.

I do intend to add more collaged leaves to these prints once the ink has dried – similar to the ‘Apple Pop’ prints.
