Lotus - early progress views

Pictured above and below: another lino block prepared for carving. Body decoration is based in part on Lotus, a panel or curtain (one of a pair) attributed to May Morris and embroidered by Morris & Co, circa 1895.

As previously mentioned, before carving, I coat the block with a coloured drawing ink, making it possible to see carved areas - particularly the fine lines - more clearly.
