Half Way Point on the Giant Macmillan Linocut

The giant linocut project is already at the half way stage! After another 6 hours of printing today at Hot Bed Press, the prints are drying, having been transformed by the third colour.

Tomorrow I will hand print the spot colours to define the hot air balloons and poppies!

Below you can see the development of the print so far, in images - as the design slowly emerges.

Transferrin the design and starting to cut the gutter

Lots of cutting - lino pieces everywhere

Printing colour 2 gradation

Lots of rollers and lots of space to print the colour 2 gradation
 
To see a video of the second colour stage, please check out this link to my website, as I have not been able to add the video here.
