Print Making First-timer… and having a blast making lino block prints :)

phaleonopsis orchid first print

 

So, I decided to take print making here in Australia just because I can and I heard good things about the program when I got here– and I had a studio elective to choose anyway. It turns out that I’m really enjoying it already. I have all of these new ideas to explore because it’s a completely new medium for me. I carved this orchid block last Friday, and I decided to carve a new block today for texture background. I am still trying to come up with an idea for the block to layer over it… I’d really like to make a fern texture block, and I thought about either making a tiger orchid block with multiples and print it in red over a yellow texture print of the tree bark block that I carved today. Seriously. My mind is bursting right now. This semester is going to be packed full of new experiences in the studio! 😀
