Linoleum Block Prints

More fun with linoleum blocks. These are my test prints on Strathmore sketch paper. The first is cut from my pencil sketch looking out from the Tennessee Art League. The others are a Nolensville Tennessee Dairy farm. I did an oil painting of it a while back.
...A little more cutting to do on my street corner before the final prints. Some of my cuts were too shallow.

Linoleum blocks are a blast. I like the one of the street corner, in particular. You have a nice, sharp use of lines.

Ever use rice paper for your printing? Back in school that was the standard. It looks great but it's super delicate. And expensive.

I have some at the house but I haven't busted out the carving tools is quite a while.

Dave, Have never tried rice paper. Kind of new to this block stuff.

Thanks Edward!

I love these block prints Chris, especially the street corner from overhead perspective. It takes me back to my art school days when I remember doing lino cuts. So satisfying to do.

These are so cool, Chris! I have one started from a year ago, I need to get it out again. You may have gotten me going!
