Lino print poppies

Have been working on a new print using Lino. I've based the work on some previous sketch book work I did a couple of summers ago and have tried combining some textured collograph backgrounds with the Lino being the last 'plate' on the print. Not really done much with Lino before so was a good exercise in cutting and seeing how the Lino works and feels under the gouge- I find it very therapeutic once the image was transferred onto the plate and I started to carve, it was good to be doing something physically creative again instead of just drawing or painting. These pics show some of the processes I went through- I'll post the print images once they are finalised.
