Linoleum Castle

This is a lino cut based on an old painting of mine. It's of Donnington Castle, near Newbury. It's back to front, but still looks rather dramatic.

Lino cuts and block printing (I'm going to try wood cuts at some point) are a novelty for me. I did some lino cut printing once at school when I was 15, and that's it for previous experience.

I bought myself a self-contained kit from Fred Aldous, and I've very much enjoyed using up the two small bits of lino in it. Needless to say, there is more lino on order...
