Latest Linocut Art Print...

I love making linocut prints..and sometimes I really love taking those prints and using different color paints and experimenting with pattern and movement. And this is what you see above: my Yellow Summer Linocut Art Print, created over the weekend. I want to create an entire series of these and soon have them available as affordable archival prints. Ooh and I have some ideas for cards...but that's later.

Below are some of the steps taken to create this piece.
In this case I used a rubber linoleum block I carved a while ago. I've actually used it for many different prints and cards (some you can find in my shop).

I began by smoothing out the yellow block paint with a soft rubber roller. I then inked my carved linoleum block with the yellow paint. I then placed the paper on top of the block and using the bottom-rounded end of a spoon, pressed down to make the print . (There are definitely better tools for this, such as a baren). I only made 2 prints. After drying I cut them down to 8.5 inches x 11 inches. And then with a big splurge of energy I began the dot painting process! And voila! It's done. What do you think? Enjoy!


  1. All I can say is WOW!!! I've admired those in your shop, but never knew how they were made. Now that I do, I admire them even more!!
