Work in Progress for IMPACT 12

Pictured above: a linocut ready for printing. Begun during my recent residency at Geelong Grammar School, the completed work will be part of a Goldfields Printmakers portfolio to be exhibited at IMPACT 12, the upcoming International Printmaking Conference in Bristol, UK. Would that I were travelling with it.

A couple of earlier progress views are below. 

Once the drawing is resolved and the block is ready to carve, I apply a coat of transparent ink to make it easier to see the areas that have been cut away.
