Slow Work

31 Jan

cutting 4

The reality of making a work of art, cutting away at a small lino block using a very small tool and making the tiniest of cuts while hoping that I don’t cut the wrong bit. It’s slow work.

I won’t try to cut every last detail at the first go, I’ll cut close but not right up to the edges and then check to see if it needs more cutting.

I put a piece of tracing paper over the design and rubbed it gently with a soft 2B pencil so I can see how the cutting is going.
