The little bird continued today. The more I work, the more frustrated I become. I seem to recall this sort of feeling when learning new things. The print has started to move in it’s own direction and probably won’t even come close to what I had envisioned, but that’s probably ok. Proof #4 is below.
A stiffer ink and a brayer without flat spots might help the inking problems. I’m also going to mount the lino to a block. All it wants to do is curl and it’s driving me nuts! More experimenting with ink & carving to come!
