Doing some linocut for our printmaking class.
Professor suggested that we start with line-art portraits, and be careful not to cut out too much material, because we are unable to restore it. Otherwise, if we start with fewer cuts, we can always do another intervention and remove excess.
Also, it is advised that we use ‘V’ shaped knife, and only in later stages to switch to ‘U’ shape.
It seems that proper technique plays a huge role, because it uses less physical strength and allows us better control over lines. Alen also gave me some good tips that I try to incorporate.
Next step is to do a test print, and prepare three more sketches.
