|Guillemot linocut: Step 8|
It's possible that only one pass remains to complete this linocut... which would mean a print accomplished in single-digit passes! Almost unheard of around here.
But there's a lot of carving to do before I commit to just one more color, AND I'm afraid there's a lot of waiting for ink to dry. Even after several days in my very warm studio the tan pass probably wasn't quite dry enough, but I was twitchy to print so I forged ahead. Now I absolutely must wait.
The good news is that I have a larger piece ready to go. Well. It will be ready to go as soon as I mount new lino and prep a stack of paper. Details, details! The next one will be more about the landscape than the birds. Time to look at the "big" picture for a while.
