Newt Love - transferred to lino
I've printed out a flipped version of my simplified drawing and traced it down onto the lino. I've alsomarked out very roughly the areas to keep (black) and cut (yellow) on the print out for when I inevitably lose concentration. Once I started carving I remembered why I don't usually buy this brown lino - too gritty and crumbly - i prefer the smoother textured grey stuff. The carving is nearly complete so hopefully i'll be printing tomorrow.
