"Sophie" has colour.
At night, when the rest of the family were lolling around in front of the telly I sat at my desk, labouriously hand colouring over 20 versions of this little scene. Mad I know, but I knew if I didnt do them all together, they would never get done. Played around with several colour schemes until I decided on this one.

What am I doing this week? Here is young "Sophie", a linocut awaiting hand colouring - I think. I am very hesitant to add colour after being happy with the black and white design.

Also, have to print a woodengraving, working on two reduction linocuts for a couple of exchanges, my dog Jontyto be immortalised in lino, and a new baby in church warrants another print to be developed for "Rebecca". - to see other prints created for babes in my life go here
