Linocutting class

Today I went to a local linocutting class, to pick up from where I left off a year ago after doing Dijanne Cevaal's online class.  Here's a few photos of my work:

 As usual, I can't resist playing with colours.
 For oversea readers, these are nikau palms, New Zealand's only native palm tree.   I drew these from an original design done in glass by my classmate, Ben Christensen.
I particularly like the orange one on the right, which I made after adding yellow to the red and blue linocut at left.

 Here's a beautiful building done by Lesley du Mez of Southland Education (with permission).
Lastly, here's a sketch done in Drawing this week  just to show you that my drawing has improved.

How do you have time to breathe! Amazing! I'm really looking forward to seeing more of your Travellers Blanket - mine is on hold for a few days - quilts ready to go to Huston! Scarey!

The print is great Shirley. I'll be excited to see what you do with the prints. That was something we did in my art class in school, & I really enjoy carving the designs.

Your embroideries are lovely too.It will be a yummy blanket.

Love the nikau palms Shirley - miss seeing them as palm trees here just don't have the same character. Will look forward to seeing what you transform the prints into. Ciao

Would love to immerse myself in the SIT Arts programme...I see such good results coming through. Maybe one day when I manage to free up a year. Warm cheers and love your plant studies.
