Lewes: The Ouse from Cliffe Bridge

And another print of Lewes. Like the previous one, it's a view from Cliffe Bridge; this time looking in the other direction, south, past the old warehouses, towards the Linklater Pavilion.

The Ouse from Cliffe Bridge, Lewes

Three plate linocut, 10 x 10cm. Edition of 5.

Struggling a bit here with the multiple plate technique, which I've not done much of before. Working on such a small scale makes any errors much more visible. You can see the black layer overlaps at the left edge -- if this was a 50cm square, that would be hardly noticeable, but on a 10cm square it stands out. Need to cut the blocks much more accurately, and sort out the registration method.
