Collared doves work in progress

I love the look of the chalky white against the soft grey lino and always pause at this stage in the lino cutting and debate whether to carry on or just leave it as it is. I'll aim to match that soft grey (perhaps a shade or two lighter) in ink when it comes to printing. I might add a smudge of buttery yellow too. I've steered clear of yellow in the past but I rather liked it in Betty's Hen no.3 so i'm emboldened to try again, albeit much softer this time.


  1. Gorgeous! I also love white on grey. Will be lovely to see the finished print.

  2. Ooh, I look forward to seeing this printed when it's finished, I love collared doves :)

  3. I love the shape you've created with the 2 birds, one of my favourite birds.
