Red Winged Blackbird Project | I’m Starting to Love It!

Here’s another update on the blackbird and goldfinch project that I’ve been working on. I mixed a semi-transparent gray color to add to the bottom of the image.

After the gray was printed I carved away more of the linoleum so I wouldn’t get the next color (orange) transferred onto any area that it shouldn’t be.

The orange is also semitransparent so parts of the underlying colors can show through. Only the top 3/4 of the image is inked in this color.

It’s finally starting to look like…something other than random blocks of color. Only 2 more colors to add to this. In the next post I should be able to reveal the final print. I’m starting to love it!
