New linocut

First stage of a new linocut.

City linocut

It took about eight hours to draw and cut this first layer. Then I printed it in a pale blue to dark grey gradient. (Yes, grey; this is a bad photograph.)

At this stage, the print looks very much like the London linocut. Perhaps that's inevitable with cityscapes: you get blue at the top for the sky; grey at the bottom for the road; and a confusion of building in the middle.
