I Get By 2


Since I seem to be talking a lot about the names of my pieces, this title comes from the Beatles song, I get by with a little help from my friends...

This first block print of that name is cut and printed in a single layer and then hand painted. I showed it in a previous post, but I'll put it up again for purposes of comparison.









Number 2 is a reduction cut block print in three colors--yellow, red and a green/black. Both were printed using soft blocks.

These were cut using the same drawing. I'm surprised how differently they turned out! I hadn't looked at the first print in several weeks, and it is interesting seeing them side by side.

These two prints are really lovely Elizabeth. I love your quirky style. It really is appealing. I am new to linocut so only doing one colour at the moment.
