I was lucky enough to be given a set of lino tools the other day and have been pondering on designs for some limited hand printed runs...to be sold either as cards or prints to be framed.
I did a couple of drawings in ink (I love my Faber Castell Pitt pens), and with the help of a well known paint program, scanned then coloured them in to see how they'd look as lino cuts using just 3 colours.
The first two are possibles, the last blue one is a scan from a gardening catalog which I messed around with. I think is too complex to use as a lino design. But would make a fantastic canvas painting. Hmm. Be interested to hear what others think.
I love the blue in this one. It reminds me of the Klein blue I saw so much of in the South of France last year.
