And that beginner is me, of course.
I was in Toulouse this weekend and made sure to stop at art galleries, used book stalls in the central court (found a good van Gogh biography) and a very well-equipped art supply shop.
Among other necessities, I picked up all I needed for linocut printmaking, something I have been wanting to try for a while.
The process of cutting into the linoleum did not come naturally to me and I managed to stab myself in the thumb with the gauge. However, once I settled on a slow and steady rhythm I was able to achieve something akin to a bird. I finished one of the prints with a bit of ink.
It feels great to start the week with something new!
