I found a very old lino offcut which was exactly the right size for a little print. It was quite difficult to cut but not too bad after being warmed to soften up.
The image is loosely based on an etching from 1525 by Urs Graf.
When I inked the lino there were still some mistakes. I cut deeper lines, using tweezers to remove the tiny pieces. I liked the idea of a little rocking card, so some of them are printed on circles…
Linocut, 10 x 5.5cm. Linseed ink on Japanese paper.
We visited the Amgueddfa Werin, (which is now the museum of history?) to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday. Unexpectedly saw some dancers and musicians from Brittany, so I have a new source to draw some circular dancing from.
