Project 5 painting and printing Stage 2 Selecting your design ideas

Having experimented with some printing techniques, I took a look through my sketchbooks for some drawings to develop into print.  I selected four drawings.

I wondered whether I could combine some of these designs into a sample and as I really wanted to work with lino cuts and felt this would be a good technique to use, I started practicing lo cutting.  I tried first of all with green lino and then tried some transparent lino cutting material which I found softer and easier to use.  Being able to trace my image, helped too.
