Lino Lino Lino
from drawing to lino...
this is the princess with her Phoenix.. sitting underneath a guava tree- the first image in the book..
the plan is to draw each image, then lino it, get a print onto acitate. then make separations from acitate and screenprint each image- will need to come up with a colour scheme- it will be simple - limited to maybe 4-5 colours so all the images work well :)
i'm using lino to get the texture from the print and also the simplified line. it is quite a striking way to create imagery.
orginally i was just going to have the lino cuts but they seem a bit harsh without colour... also, the face in the cut above will not be filled- need to fix that :)
