Friday afternoon's linocut adventure started to bring our little birdy buddy back in to view:
Step 10: Another blend, this one green to green. I like how the fence is starting to appear at this point.
I thought I'd be clearing out all the background now and finishing up the fence and bird, but I think it needs one more pass to deepen the value in the bottom third of the image. So... a little more grass carving and THEN the bird and the fence.
