Linocut in Progress: Self-imposed tedium
The problem with granite-y rocks is that they are a riot of little tiny flecks of color. Of course no one said I had to try to PRINT a riot of little tiny flecks. I brought that on myself.
I don't have a lot of patience for carving noodly bits of lino right now, so I walk away from it about every 20 minutes or so. The last time I walked away I realized that I made a semi-serious mistake in the order in which I've been printing colors, so now I have tedium AND annoyed-with-myself problem solving to face. Yep. This particular step is taking a while.
