Print in Progress

I’ve included two photos in this post of the lino block that I carved in 2005 that led to the print I call Observer. I first painted an image on the block. However, the act of carving was often somewhat intuitive.  I made decisions about the texture and changed the image as I went along instead of having a fixed idea in my mind when I started out. For example, you can see that the oval on the left side of the girl’s face didn’t make it to the final print. Here’s the finished print from an earlier post:

And here’s some details from the linoleum as I was in the process of carving the block:
