Lino-cut Starling with stars

This starling with stars is the first lino-cut I have made for a very long time. It is rough and scrappy and intended to be chaotic. The starling is a very common bird in Orkney, and quite beautiful in its own subtle way.

The print was made using a block-printing medium mixed with acrylic paint, which turned out to be far less opaque than I had hoped. As a result the colours are nowhere close to what was originally envisioned. I applied too much ink to the roller in an effort to compensate for the transparency, which only resulted in a messier print!

In a lino-cut reduction process, each layer is printed and then lino cut away for the next colour. This means the print can never be replicated.
