Relief printing with linocut – first attempt

I’ve been playing a little with relief printing, and I’m enjoying it immensely so far. This is my first piece. It’s actually the second impression I took off the first block I made, but since it’s my favourite of the edition (of three) this is what I chose to upload.

Linocut 1 - first print

The paper is Velin Arches, and the ink is water-based lamp black from the Graphic Chemical & Ink Co.
