linocut practice

bench and shadows

a "linocut" is a print made from a block of linoleum (i'm sure it's similar to the floor stuff, but i'm not sure how...).  the positive (white) areas are carved away and the black is whatever is left: a relief print.

this is a practice one i've been working on for the last week.  

more to come... i'm becoming addicted :)
