Mahi Mahi Block Print

Mahi Mahi Block Print, originally uploaded by diahn.

Just playing. Stuck on fish. I blame Linda.

I cut a linoleum block using a sketch I did over Thanksgiving, then printed it onto 140 lb cold press. I painted it with gouache, which was a little tricky, because the only printing ink I had was water soluble, so it mixed in here and there with the paints. I kind of like the flat head juxtaposed against the more modeled body.

I only said that so I could use the word "juxtaposed" in a sentence.

It's 14x11", by the way...
