Handmade Three Seagulls Lino Print.

Lino print of 3 seagulls in blue

This lino print was created with this week's Illustration Friday topic of 'Wings' in mind. 

The main part of the image is a hand pulled lino print. The background has then been added digitally. Below is an image showing the carved lino that was used to create the print and one of the original prints.

The beauty of lino printing is that once you have carved the lino the hard work is done. Then you get to have some fun and print from it as many times as you like giving you the freedom to experiment with different colours/papers, techniques etc. I'm definitely not finished playing with this plate yet!
