two for the price of one

The screenprint did not quite work out as expected. Not sure if I like it. Yet. The insubstantial sketch is the start of another card image. Probably a lino cut.

Lino cut EDM3

This is the first pull of the lino cut. It needs some fine tuning but it's essentially there.

Birdcage EDM2

So I have moved on to brush and ink and I shall start on the lino cut next.

Birdcage EDM1

A quick sketch for a larger project. I'm going to print this hopefully later as a lino cut then move on to a screen print onto fabric.

A few more pictures and a sketch from Guilin. The sketch is of an Osmanthus tree which I believe is where Guilin got it's name Guilin= 'Osmanthus forest". The Osmanthus tree is very fragrant and they make a special tea from it's flowers which is mixed with green or black tea.

The sketch was made while sitting in a coffee shop while the children worked out on the exercise machines. I can Highly recommend it if you are in Yang Shou. The Teas in the photos alas are not Osmanthus!
