Making linocuts are actually easy projects to do at home. I have made these linocuts in the living room, and it doesn´t take very long time - very suitable for me who allways want quick results!
I regard this as a test print - the print is made by rubbing the back of a spoon on the paper and the paper is just some sketching quality paper. Later, I want to use a proper printmaking press to see how that works. And of course, a high quality paper.
Below you can see how the linocut looks like.

What I realize I really need to learn more about, is use of colours. And I think copying other artists as I am doing these days is really valuable to me,

I like Mataya´s way of using colours and how she decomposes the objects. So I will make yet another copy today.

I have been working on monoprints today. I do not have proper paper for printmaking, I have just used a poor quality sketching paper. But I really like this kind of work allthough I do not master it very well yet - the not knowing what the result will be is what excites me. Most of the attempts fails, but now and then something interesting shows up. I am considering hand colouring this image a bit so it is easier for the viewer to see what`s there. Do you think I should? I actually think I have to, as the black area in the middle of the image dominates and leads the eye too strongly.
