Happy Valentine's Day!
Song Thrush （ウタツグミ）
This was my first trial of reduced linocut. First, I carved the brown layer, printed and then I carved the same linosheet further more to make the black layer. This way, I can print exactly on top of the brown layer (if the registration goes well) and I can save expensive linosheet and precious time. But I will never be able to print any more than I produced brown-layer-print at a time!
It was scary and thrilling to start carving the black layer, destroying the one I have made spending so much time. In some way this is a "live art."
I hope you have a wonderful day with loved one!
