Lino Printing.

Lino printing is a form of fine art printmaking, where the printing plate is cut into line. The lino is then inked, a piece of paper is placed over it and run through the printing press or pressure can be applied to transfer ink onto the paper.

Inspiring artist: Steve Duffy. From looking at steve’s linocut work i have found interest in the use of lines he makes to create his pieces of work, some there’s hardly any but still forms a great peice of work with so little mark making on the lino.

The idea behind my lino print making was to make the end of the tunnel in my image i was working from to stand out more, but from me cutting into the lino the wrong way not noticing the outcome from when i added the ink to the lino, the end of the tunnel will come out black not clear.. but i still liked the finishing results and now i know next time i come to creating another lino print i can persue better outcome. I could use this in further studying when new ideas are made.
