Ashdown Forest: Linocut, final stage

The final layer of ink has been applied -- and it's all gone wrong!

Ashdown Forest: Linocut, final stage
Wood Eaves, Ashdown Forest. Five stage reduction linocut, 10 x 10cm.

The colour's too brown and too dark. The trees are confused, and there should have been more definition over on the right.

But I quite like the dark green shadow on the grass. That's the effect of the transparent blue layer that I applied yesterday, so that's a technique I'll try again.

On with the next print...
