Cuckmere Valley: Stage 1

First stage of a new linocut. I’ve cut away a few marks that I want to stay white, and then printed a blended layer from ultramarine blue to yellow ochre to a blue-grey mix.

New linocut: Stage 1

Not much to see yet. Forcing myself to keep the early stages as light as possible to create more contrast with the darker, later stages.

    I like the gradation you have managed to get in the blend. I find getting the tone of the first colour right one of the most difficult stages of the print. I either go too dark or far too light, very rarely do I get it exactly as I want.
