My first ever Lino cutting

So I finally took the plunge and decided to create my first lino cutting. I’ve carved stamps before so I was pretty confident that I could do this too. I sketched my design onto the block, then spent hours carving. I think I was a little too ambitious with my design for my first try, but I like how it turned out. I’m really looking forward to doing more! I don’t have the proper printing inks, so my first print was just done with paint.
