Linocut: A26 at Lewes

A dark colour to bring out the details, and finish the print.

A26, Lewes
Five stage reduction linocut, approx 13.5 x 10 cm.
It’s the view of the River Ouse and the A26 looking south from Chapel Hill (the road up to the golf course) in Lewes, looking south towards the Ouse valley down to Newhaven.

Lewes: The Ouse from Cliffe Bridge

And another print of Lewes. Like the previous one, it’s a view from Cliffe Bridge; this time looking in the other direction, south, past the old warehouses, towards the Linklater Pavilion.

The Ouse from Cliffe Bridge, Lewes

Three plate linocut, 10 x 10cm. Edition of 5.

Struggling a bit here with the multiple plate technique, which I’ve not done much of before. Working on such a small scale makes any errors much more visible. You can see the black layer overlaps at the left edge — if this was a 50cm square, that would be hardly noticeable, but on a 10cm square it stands out. Need to cut the blocks much more accurately, and sort out the registration method.
