Hand pressing a lino cut design on a painting can add great depth and is ideal for repetitive patterns. I’ve hand pressed the detail of plants directly over the landscape area of this painting. Gold leaf applied to the image has been worked through the paint by rolling and blending in more block inks on top. The image changes depending on the light, sometimes the textured darker lino print designs are stronger. Other times the delicate gold leaf and opaque sunset sky catches the light and glimmers.
