I decided to work this block both positive and negative.
Line is the first conversation I have when I'm considering a composition. Not very often do I work a piece multiple ways. I was interested in working on a painted piece of Linoleum to see how my mind would read each cut. So this was a perfect opportunity.
I have to say I may make this a new studio practice to paint my blocks.
I love the contrast...I typically fall more in love with the block than the print. shhhhh dont tell!
