Printmaking! Hand-painted linocut prints

In October of 2016, I began making linocut prints. It's still a new process for me, but I've been having fun with the different directions you can take it in. If you follow me on Instagram (@LadydeanArt), then you know what I'm talking about!

This photo shows eight of twelve one-color linocuts from January. The idea was to carve and print the one color (black), and then paint them, as opposed to doing the full color-reduction process for the colors. This was a solution to a time-crunch issue, and allows for a lot more variation of color in the final product. Half of these are painted in acrylic, and half are painted in gouache.

If you are interested in purchasing one, please send me a note! They are each $75.00 USD (unframed), plus shipping.
