New work, finally!

edinburgh enlightenment, lino print, handmade, etsy, folksy, linocut, scotland

It took me a while to get these done. One is large, and took a very long time to draw out, carve and print. The other is much smaller but based on a real wall, from a real house - so I wanted it to have enough detail to be authentic without being a complete copy of the wall... taxing times in lino print world!

The top image (above) is 'enlightenment' Edinburgh and is a piece of whimsy. The bottom shows the end wall of 'the ruin'. A house on a Scottish Island. 

Very different pieces, with a very different feeling. Let me know your thoughts!
