Print-making

Spent yesterday at a print-making workshop.  Covered mono-printing, dry-point etching, lino print and the theory of woodcutting.  I much preferred mono-printing and lino (dry-point etching is like someone dragging their fingernails down a blackboard, and woodcutting seemed like way more effort than lino).  And top tip for lino cutting - heat the lino with a hairdryer or on a radiator for five minutes.

Here is my first lino sample, design inspired by stuccoes at the Alhambra in Granada.
