Reduction linocut - first colour....

Ok, so there's not much to see after the first printing, but that's just the way it should be. My image is made up of 6 tones, so it was important to get the first one a really light shade.  I've managed to create a lighter shade in this layer by lightly hatching the lino with a fine cutting tool.  You can see the lino here.

I've recut my lino for tomorrow night's class. Stay tuned for the results.
