After Schongauer

Eduardo came over earlier this week and helped me print.

I'm trying to figure out various options for printing the big lino.
I've never printed linocuts onto canvas before.
Never liked canvas, much. Always preferred paper and wood...
I've been thinking about various lighter weight options-such as rice paper-
but I want materials sturdier than that as well.
The linen seems a likely candidate for the big lino.
But not the rice paper we used this time.

I'm not sure if the photo conveys it, but her face on the linocut itself,
after printing and cleaning,
is much softer.

I did a previous post about the image.
