I thought I'd share the progress of my artichokes lino print...
|First plate cut|
|Plate for second colour being cut|
|First and second colour plates inked up for a test print|
|test print - not sure about the colours|
I've run off a test print from these first two plates just to check the overall balance and registration. The only requirement was that one was a darker shade than the other and the colours I've used here this test were just what I happened to have on the ink slab at the time. These greens are a little more muted than I had planned for this piece (see the original sketch in previous post) but now this slightly seventies palette feels just right. I'll have to lighten it up a bit though because there is a nice splash of purple to come too, what do you think?
