Lino cut, sketch and doodle

Even though I woke this morning with the dreaded aches back again, I managed to do a reasonable amount of fun stuff.
I had a small piece of easy cut sitting on my desk and made this small lino cut. A few problems printing it and it needs a bit more cut out but it was a start.
While having coffee yesterday I sketched the plant by the buildings wall, I think they are called lions paws or some such. I painted them when I got home, love that cmbination of orangy red and green.
While in big W yesterday I bought some new cheap coloured felt tips, these are from crayola and go on rather differently, they were fun to fill in the doodle of odd shaped fish? eels? just something else I had to find a home for but they sit by my chair and while watching, or not watching tv sometimes I doodle and play. (Now that sounds a bit of a suspect sentence!!) I hope you know what I mean.
A very pleasant day today, yesterday was very windy but today a breeze but thankfully quite cool so our beach walk was one of the best yet.

I really love your lino cut, Penny, and I can see getting a lot of use out of this design.

I love anyone who finds things to do while watching TV. There is such mindless drivel on the box generally. Linocuts have such a lovely feeling.

Your drawings are lovely and I really like your use of colour.

P-the great thing about lino cut prints is they do give you the chance to touch them up; but better still being able to print multiples. Keep going with it - it is fun. B
