How the petals get made ⚔️
A few minutes, 4 tools and @sharpie
for each one, this lino carving is coming along.
The second block and printing process will be experimental for me so I’m really soaking in this intuitive, natural part of the process, the carving. My illustration comes from a photo of a rose at St. Edward’s Church in Stow on the Wold, England. My dad made a magnificent drawing of the door to the church - I’ll plan to share in my stories soon. While we were there this summer, I was captivated by the rose garden in the cemetery, very memento mori 🖤🌹💀
