The first linocut I ever made.

I like the figure. Try playing with varying the width of the line you cut. I think the border is too much. Though I love the horizontal background. The patchy white on the blue ground works surprisingly well. It softens the image because of it's transparency. Because the paper was not absorbant it's pushed the paint to the edges when you've printed, creating a white outline round the figure. Interesting.

I was mucking about with the background to see what effects I could get. I'm very much still in the experimental stage of linoprint making.

That's okay. Lino printing is time consuming, before you get the the final 'printing' bit.
